Somerset County Arts Council

Serving Somerset County, Maryland

Through your membership support we advocate through direct dialogue the importance of the arts to local, regional, and state officials.  Your membership dollars directly support collaboration with other county and non-profit organizations to provide funding, expertise, and assistance in their efforts to facilitate cultural enrichment throughout the county.    This year with your support we were able to assist individual artists throughout the county with needed funding for art making and presentation.  Your membership dollars create and maintain the West Main Street Gallery, a distinctive exhibition space for artists and artisans to promote their creative activities, providing a source of revenue for local artists through exhibitions, as space for performance, a specialty shop, and a workspace for Artist in Residence to facilitate their artistic efforts.  With growing member support, we are pleased to provide outreach for artists throughout Somerset County to offer workshops, classes, for all ages, children’s activities and a community frame shop giving needed assistance for visual art presentation at the Somerset County Arts Council Education Center.


As a member you will have the opportunity to participate in two exhibitions a year at our West Main Street Gallery, maintain works for sale in our Members Gallery and Gift Shop, and opportunity to participate in new and growing artist classes, workshops, free live performance, and children’s activities during the upcoming year.  If you choose to volunteer, we have many areas where your efforts will be appreciated.


Our memberships run from end of August 2021 – the end of July 2022.
