Nice collection of local artists including paintings, sculpture, pottery. jewelry, cards . We bought a watercolor painting by a locally prominent artist whose art was featured at the gallery at that time.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We happened to walk by this center on our way to dinner and they were having an open house for a new artist so we decided to stop in. So glad we did!!! What a great place with so much local talent. Friendly people, too.

“Jewel of PennYan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

What a treasure we found on the old main street. I was quite thrilled by the breadth of talent represented in this small town's Arts Center. While there on vacation, we lucked out on timing and had our 9-year-old take part in a Saturday kids' workshop, making her own "penny whistle" (which I then learned from her is really a PentiWhistle for the pentatonic scale it plays). Not just art hanging on a wall.

“What a jewel of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

When someone has the insight to "jump in the deep end of the pool" with as much conviction and thought as those that formed this Art Center the result has to be success, roaring success. While much of Penn Yan has remained a quaint small town the Art Center has shown that elegance, class and polish are well received too. There are New York City galleries that could learn from Penn Yan. The level of art exhibited is varied, but always interesting. Every media is included - from photography to jewelry making, painting to woodworking. But perhaps the hidden treasure is the upstairs education center. The list of classes seem endless. If you venture to Penn Yan and miss the Art Center - you really have MISSED IT! Make sure you go for one of the openings - great wine, great art, great people.
