Founded in 1938 by members of the Parkersburg WV Woman’s Club, the Art Center is the oldest arts organization in WV in continuous operation! Now in its fifth home, the Art Center is located on a busy corner right downtown.

The facility houses six separate gallery areas (including one just for kids!) that can be used individually or in tandem, and those galleries hold an average of 16 visual art exhibits each year. Shows range from the works of internationally known artists though art by area schoolchildren, and there is ALWAYS something interesting to see.

School and group tours are available!  A variety of fun and exciting art exhibits can be toured throughout the year.

Our gift shop offers handmade art, jewelry,clothing, pottery and more- for sale by local artists.

From a small gathering of 5 to a huge reception of 500, the Art Center has rental space to fill your needs.
