Welcome to Art Downtown, an art gallery operated by the members of the Hanover Area Arts Guild

We are located in the heart of historic downtown Hanover, Pa., within easy walking distance of a variety of charming shops, galleries, restaurants and other attractions.  Metered street and lot parking is available, and don't worry, .50¢ get's you 2 1/2 hours of parking, can't beat that!  (Need to be here longer then 2 1/2 hours?  Click here to find out the best place to park!)

The 501 (c)3 non-profit guild, originated in 1968, has grown into an eclectic organization of more than 150 artists and fine craftsmen, offering new shows and exhibits monthly. Artists' workings in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, collage, photography, pottery, ceramics, fiber arts, jewelry, bead-work, sculpture, glass and more fill the gallery with original creations. Our gallery is one of central Pennsylvania's best kept secrets! We offer art at fantastic prices; stop by and see what our local artisans have created and take home a true original for yourself or your home, or find the perfect gift.

We are proud to provide numerous art-related classes and workshops each season.  We also offer a scholarship opportunity for local high school students who wish to pursue art degrees after graduating!

We believe in a revitalized downtown, having a great relationship with our fellow local businesses and organizations, and are happy to work with our neighbors to bring more people downtown.

Gallery Exhibits

Typically, we have a new exhibit to showcase every month. Each exhibit is special in its own way. Focusing either on one artist in particular, relating to the holiday of the month, annual showcases or our  exhibits of art students from local high schools in the area, we love to keep it fresh for you.
