The Garrett County Arts Council operates
The Gallery Shop at 206 E. Alder Street in Oakland to showcase
the fine arts and crafts of regional artists.
More than 150 artists and artisans currently participate in
Gallery displays and exhibits.
We change our main Gallery
exhibit three times each year to maintain a fresh appearance.
We rotate special exhibits featuring solo artists more frequently—every
six to eight weeks.
We host public receptions
for featured solo artists at each rotation of exhibit. Please
Contact Us if you wish to receive
invitations to receptions and other Gallery events.
You’ll find us in downtown Oakland along Alder Street
directly opposite Englander’s Antiques. The hundreds
of original hand-crafted items we carry include paintings,
photographs, pottery, porcelain, line drawings, wall hangings,
knit goods, blown glass, jewelry, stained glass, turned wood,
wood carvings, fused glass, ornaments, note cards, baskets,
iron work, literary publications, hand-made soap, and more.
