Together we are keeping the arts alive in Somerset County!


We are so excited to host our 2nd Off the Wall 3-D Exhibit! Thirty-two artists answered our Call for Entry with some amazing pieces representing Allegheny, Cambria, Fayette, Indiana, Somerset, & Westmoreland Counties in Pennsylvania; Hampshire, Monongalia and Morgan Counties in West Virginia; and Prince George’s County in Maryland. There are so many talented people in the tri-state area and we are truly honored to showcase them at Laurel Arts!

As always, our exhibits and receptions are open to the public and free to attend, so be sure to experience the arts of Somerset County at Laurel Arts!


Instead of massed produced artwork you can buy at big box stores or online, why not stop at the Philip Dressler Center for the Arts for a one-of-a-kind local/regional artist produced item? We have so many unique and unusual pieces, including jewelry, mugs, woodcarvings, greetings cards and more!
