About the Berkeley Art Works

The Berkeley Art Works, a service of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans.

Artists at The Works

The Berkeley Art Works is the Martinsburg home for a select group of local and regional artists, whose work is on display and for sale in the gallery during our business hours. Meet the Artists at The Works here.
