About The Gallery:

Ray and Michelle Troll opened the Soho Coho art gallery in 1992. It's appropriately situated above a salmon spawning stream in K-town's notorious former red light district. The Star Building was the biggest house-of-ill-repute on the street and featured a hardwood dance floor with a large inlaid star. The original star is still there today! Once upon a time it housed a rouwdy dance hall run by the likes of "sporting women" known as Black mary and Thelman Baker. Now it showcases the artwork of Ketchikan artists Ray Troll, Evon Zerbetz, Chip Porter, Hall Anderson, Lizzie O, and more. You'll find an ecclectic mix of originals, prints, t-shirts, books, fossils, and unique gifts at the Soho Coho where our moto is "Better living through difficult art!"

 

How To Find Us:


 

The Soho Coho is located at #5 Creek Street in the heart of Ketchikan's infamous former red light district. Creek Street is a boardwalk street that runs along the bank of Ketchikan Creek. There are two different entrances to Creek Street. One is at the mouth of the creek, next to a red bridge. The other is further up stream next to the parking lot by the Tongass Historical Museam. We're near the entrance that's further up stream. You'll find us on the first floor of the Star building, a large salmon colored building directly across a small foot bridge from the parking lot. The Good Fortune Chinese Restaurant is next door.

If you're visiting Ketchikan on a cruise ship we're within easy walking distance of the cruise ship docks. If you are arriving on a ferry or from the airport, just head south toward downtown. Creek Street is 2 1/4 miles from the ferry dock, so consider taking a cab or catching the bus if you don't have a car. Especially if the notoriously rainy Ketchikan weather is making a walk seem less appealing. 

We hope to see you soon!
