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 rowdy dance hall run by the likes of “sporting women” known as Black Mary and Thelma Baker. Now it showcases the artwork of Ketchikan artists Ray Troll, Evon Zerbetz, Chip Porter, Hall Anderson, Grace Freeman, and more. You’ll find an eclectic mix of originals, prints, t-shirts, books, fossils, and unique gifts at the Soho Coho where our motto is “Better living through difficult art!”
