Appalachian Creativity Center is a cooperative environment that encourages artists to produce high-quality art for a new and innovative art gallery. The gallery attracts artists of all mediums including photography, painting, pottery, and stained glass. Appalachian Creativity Center also encourages writers to display their work at the Center. In addition, the Center also draws jewelers, wood crafters, fiber artists, and other artists, crafters, and artisans as well.
As owners of Appalachian Creativity Center, Ann M. Nicholson and Shirley J. Rosenberger are actively involved in spreading the arts in their community. They are also owners of a community theatre company, Project Talent Theatre Workshops. The owners believe art in all its forms are important to building a strong community, especially when it comes to the children and young adults. The arts allow for individual expression and creativity. Appalachian Creativity Center is a place for artists to showcase their talent and to inspire the visitors to the Gallery.
As a hub for art in the community of Connellsville, we presently have more than fifteen artists that teach classes on everything from fiber arts to acrylic paining, from fantasy illustration to masking, and everything in between. In addition to providing a Gallery and Art Education Center for the Appalachian Region, The Center organizes festivals and events for the community. Come check us out!!!
