Please visit the Art & The Art and Antiques Gallery, located in the old J. C. Penney building, 207 West Main Street, has been open to the public since November, 2001. This building formerly housed the Museum of the Barrens, now called the South Central Kentucky Cultural Center.

When the Cultural Center moved to their new facility, the Museum Board wanted to do something with the empty building that would add to the downtown area, but at the same time bring income back to the museum they could use for exhibits. A committee was formed consisting of Brenda Pook, Jamie Doty, Kristen Bale, Sandra Travis and Sheila Oliver. They felt Glasgow needed an Art Gallery. The Art Gallery would allow local artists to display their art at no charge until they sold a painting. If a painting is sold, 20% of the price goes toward the museum. Since the building was so large, an antique mall was planned for the other side, to bring in more revenue. The mall rents space to dealers for $50.00 per month, and 10% of their sales each month goes to the museum. The mall also takes consignment antique furniture and when sold 20% of that goes to the museum.

Renaissance appropriated the money to the Cultural Center to remodel the front of the building. It's so amazing what a little paint and imagination will do. Deana Snow is the manager of the Art & Antiques Gallery, anyone else you find working there is a volunteer. If you like working with antiques or art, new volunteers are always welcome and always needed.

If you haven't been in, you really should! It's a great place to visit and at the same time support the Cultural Center. The art hung in the gallery shows what talent we have in the Barrens and if you like to browse Antique Malls, ours is one to be proud of. Our hours are Monday though Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Central Time.
