Prominently located on the square in Newport, the Perry County Council of the Arts (PCCA) Gallery showcases the fine artwork of over 150 of the region’s talented artisans. With the assistance of a knowledgeable, passionately committed staff, you can learn the story behind the artwork and discover who the artists are and what drives them to create.

The Gallery showcases several themed and solo artist exhibitions each year, and with other gallery displays changing more frequently, there is a revolving display of paintings, sculptures, pottery, literature, jewelry, organic homemade personal care products, clothing and accessories.
