The Gallery Shop

The Gallery Shop is a retail storefront in the heart of the Oakland Arts & Entertainment District providing a venue for local visual artists to show and sell their artwork. Since 2016, the Garrett County Arts Council has juried in and accepted works from over 450 local artists. We currently have artwork regularly on display from over 100 artisans.

In 2021, we began expanding opportunities for artists, artisans, rural entrepreneurs, community members, and students to come together to participate in activities, lectures and socialization through Artists’ Third Thursdays. In 2024 we branched out to First Friday Arts events.  Monthly special exhibitions with lectures, workshops and demonstrations, and entertainment are scheduled throughout the year.

For up to date information, please follow our Facebook Page for more information on events, call for artists and the latest arts and cultural news in Garrett County.
