This is not a museum in my opinion. It is a very old and dirty school with "starving" artists. You walk in and there is no one to greet you or give you guidance. There are no instructions on where you can go. The art was displayed without captions or artist information. Would NOT recommend this place.
Love exploring this wonderful Art Center! My 6 year old daughter took Clay for Kids and LOVED it! Fantastic. Love meeting local artists and learning about their work while waiting for her class. Fantastic!
If you're into art this is the place to be for 1st Friday. The exhibits change every month. There is a wide range of artwork on display and you can meet the artists in their studios. It's a local treasure.
We love to explore the studios and the sculpture garden with the kids. The store is a wonderful way to discover new artists and support this community.
The center is a collection of open galleries where you can visit the artists and talk about their work. There is a wonderful mixture of art here. Most of the art in this area is textiles and pottery. It is refreshing to see paintings, mixed media and drawings in such a wide variety of styles.
I never had anything to do with art until I moved to Charlottesville. Now, I find myself at McGuffey Art Center on a frequent basis. I like the place so much, that I volunteered to hang exhibits there for LOOK3, Festival of the Photograph, this summer. I have met photographers, sculptors, glass blowers and pottery wizards there. All are Artists... 更多
As an artist visiting Charlottesville it was great to visit a place like McGuffey to connect with local artists and get an understanding of local arts practice. Every town should have a place for there local artists to develop, create, exhibit and sell their work. The one thing that I was a little disappointed in was the lack of things... 更多
I go on Sunday's for open studio. We have a model for 4 hours and is very cheap. $5/hour. Good place to paint and meet other artists.
Art shows are friendly and every time I visit I am overwhelmed by the talent. The opportunity to interact with artists in their studios is interesting for budding artists.
