A visit to the arts council building is a good starting place to get an overview of the Berea Art community. You can get information on local and regional fairs and other activities. You can also browse or purchase a wide sampling of the works by local artists.

There were several make and take activities going on during our visit. Lots of reasonable prices items and people willing to share about their craft. Worth the stop. This village had lots... More

I popped into the Arts Council as I walked the four corners of Old Town. Great local art in an old building. Great variety. The staff was welcoming and helpful. I love learning!

I walked by a few days ago and they are not in the building. I do believe that there is a Main Street renovation going on. I would call before you go. But if you're on Main Street, simply walk by and you'll see if they're back up and running. Usually, they have wonderful local art and a helpful, friendly... More

Berea is a cute little artsy, craftsy town. The Main Street shops and the Old Town Artisan Village are worth browsing. Don't miss lunch at the elegant Boone Tavern Hotel.

They recently moved to Old Town. Their new gallery is filled different work from local artists. The staffs are very friendly and professional. I visited them on their grand opening day. They had some artists play Bluegrass music. Awesome atmosphere!

The Kentucky Sales Center at the Berea off ramp is a delight! We always take an hour on our return trip home to enjoy the Berea Arts Center. Talk about doing Kentucky proud. We have several nice works of art from this center, which is a wonderful stop or visit.
