This Small West Virginia Street Market Is Packed With Great Local Art

It takes a village. That’s true for raising children, but it’s also true for other things… like art! In the case of the Washington Street Artists Cooperative, local artists have been coming together since 2004 to encourage, support, challenge, and learn from each other as they share the process (and results) of creating masterpieces of beauty and creativity. And they welcome you to come to see the results at their gallery in Charles Town, West Virginia.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:


The gallery of the Washington Street Artists Co-op is not located on Washington Street, as you might expect, but on 108 North George Street in Charles Town. They are currently open on Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can learn more on their Facebook page or website.

Can’t make it to Charles Town anytime soon? Tamarack is another good source of local art!
