Parkersburg Art Center

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 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. We also have a gift shop- ZOCOLO!

The Art Center is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and admission is just $2. Wednesdays are “get in for free” days, and there is never a charge for kids under 12.
