BAC strives to provide opportunities for local, regional, and national artists to show their work through the “Artists at the Works” co-op group and various juried and curated exhibits. Along with that goal, BAC works to present a high quality and diverse program of art presentation for the public in Martinsburg, Berkeley County, and throughout the tri-state region.
The Art Works has three display spaces. The front of the gallery is devoted to the “Artists at the Works” co-op group, which currently represents 13 local and regional artists and artisans. Media presented includes painting, photography, ceramics, glass, wood, and jewelry. Behind the co-op is what we call the “main” gallery and then we have a smaller space called the “Back Space”.

- February 27 – March 30: Youth Art Month: Berkeley County High School Art Program
