Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The art highlighted on our visit was bright, colorful and primitive. The unframed, free form acrylic paintings contrasted with a display of jewelry and ceramics. Most pieces are for sale.
We were lucky enough to get a short tour of the children's workshop.

Very good place to attend a wedding reception. Food was excellent, service was likewise.We attended a cocktail hour downstairs before the reception which was held upstairs. Both places were excellent.

The Art Center changes its art displays on a rotating basis and features local artists, and up and coming artists. But their 3rd floor is open for private event rentals, and I've attended several events in that space, most recently a wedding reception!

I would highly recommend a visit to the Pakersburg Art Center. They have a welcoming staff and interesting art exhibits. One thing that is OUTSTANDING is the Clay Studio. The classes are lead by very patient and encouraging teachers. I would recommend taking the pottery classes to anyone, regardless of skill level.

It is not a huge place, but it is a nice place to stop in if you are in the area and see the different art works from local artist.

We were looking for souvenirs from our trip and all the other places we looked had things that were made in China. Not here! Excellent choices of local pottery and jewelry.

The woman at the front desk was very welcoming. The gallery is so open and nice. We were pleasantly surprised by the art exhibit. Highly recommended.

My husband and I visited this past Saturday, and while the collection was small, it was unique and worth seeing. They had a wedding being held there later that day, so we had to move around some of the 'wedding' items, but all in all, it was an interesting visit. I would recommend visiting if you are in the area.

We came across the center by accident while walking in the city. The interior is so different to the exterior in that inside has a modern gallery appearance and, at the time that we attended, a a broad range of showings for metal relief to finer art work.
The gift shop had a range of purchase options from mid-range cost to smaller inexpensive items that could satisfy the inquisitive child. It was also refreshing to see children's books written by local authors, expanding the concept of art.
The person to whom I spoke said that there were bigger plans ahead and that would definitely be a benefit to this city.
