“Pleasing to the eyes...Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Aiken Center for the Arts is a relaxing place to visit and shop. You can find art to view and art to buy. The Aiken Center for the Arts is located in the old general store dating back to the early 1900s. Take a nice spring or fall day to view the shops along Lauren St. Remanence of the days long ago lost.

“Fun to Browse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This center makes me wish we lived closer to Aiken. It appears to be a wonderful venue for lots of artful occasions. The local art presented is varied and of quite good quality, and is supplemented with a variety of cute gift items that are not made in the area. The building itself is lovely, and the personnel are always friendly. I make sure I visit every time I am in town.

“A great facility for a conference.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

The Center hosted the 36th Annual Bluebird Society Conference on Thursday and Friday (October 4 & October 5). The conference was held on the second floor (Brown Pavilion). On the same floor another large room provided space for the silent auction with items to bid on displayed on tables. Another room was used as an information center to distribute material and to provide vendors a venue. Restrooms are available on this floor. An elevator and/or stairs take you up from the first floor. When you enter the Center, you are in the gift shop. Behind the store are the gallery spaces (that you pass through to get to the second level). The main gallery displayed a Wildlife Exhibition. There was a display of paintings by a local artist in the back of this huge space. The seats in the lecture hall were comfortable folding chairs. The Audio/Visual equipment worked well. The room temperature was just right. It was a very good facility for this conference. The Center is located downtown.
