For a showcase of the art of Kentucky it is nice, but because of the size does not do the artists justice. This is a nice stop for a quick view, but if you want to see what the Berea Artisans are really about you...More

Found cream candy, Ale8one, and several other local delicacies in this artist conclave. The orange cream candy was a real treat nor to miss. The local artist displayed here are very talented and well shown in such a beautiful building.

There are no outside exhibits. It's all indoors. Only service animals allowed. We left our dog in the car listening to his favorite music with the a/c on so he would comfortable. Best to leave a note inside the window too.
