My 9yo grabbed one of the flyers in one of the rest stops along I76 going through PA. It had an advertisement for a FabricArt exhibit. On our trip back through PA we stopped in. It was an amazing exhibit for my daughter who loves crafts and had never been to a gallery. She was shocked at much the pieces... More

This is a beautiful gallery. It's has a changing programme of exhibitions. The best show is the triennial Fiberarts International, which is also shown in the Pittsburgh Centre for the Arts simultaneously. The gallery is light and airy with a small shop that sells beautiful craft/artwork.

Right in the middle of all the food vendors, specialty shops, etc along Penn Avenue and Smallman Street, the SCC is a wonderful spot to view some amazing artistry from local artists. The shows change regularly so it is worth multiple trips.

Not a big place, as it is a working studio. About 1/2 is current large display, 1/8 is a small gift shop of hand crafted items, and the rest is work space. Worth the stop, as it is interesting to see what they've been creating. (30 minutes max.)

The Society For Contemporary Craft (SCC) is a small museum that provides perspective on innovative craft artists. It has a very nice gift shop and is well worth the time. Best of all it is free!

We visit this little known, almost hidden artistic treasure shop off the southwestern corner of Smallman and 21st Street two or three times a year, and are regularly blown away by the quality and invention of the different items for sale and/or display. Sometimes it's just a wide collection of artistic wares by local painters and sculptors, other times it's... More
