There’s a new art space opening in Gig Harbor – and for a change, it’s not a cooperative.

The gallery, created by former Chamber of Commerce president Dr. Christian Cohen at his chiropractic offices, will be curated by printmaker Donna Carver, who will also be the first artist to show in the space. Shows will rotate monthly, with artist receptions from 4-7 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month (Art Walk). Upcoming artists include Kashia Hill, Arvid Anderson, Mary McInnis, Anne Knapp, Pat Meras, Lynda Lindner, Kathy OBrien-Rywacki, Myrna Binion, Darlene Dihel, Marti Green, and Susan Paredes.
The Art Space @ Backbone opens with a reception from 4-7 p.m. Aug. 6. Free. 7108 Pioneer Way, Gig Harbor, 253-858-2474,,
