Who Are We?
Prior to The Arts Barn, Director Deborah Cooper of Schuylkill Haven operated The Toy Barn, born of her desire to give her kids the best toys out there. Toys that were educational, fun and well made. Since that store closed, the space became a repository of all sorts of interesting but unused antiques. The Arts Barn was born when she realized that most of her friends were artists, all hard working and very talented, and yet they had no outlet for their work except the occasional art show. The antiques became the showcases for the art, and the walls that once held shelves of crafts, music, and dolls became the walls that now hold incredible works of arts.
The Arts Barn Gallery is an art gallery of over 140 local Pennsylvania artists and artisans displaying fine arts and crafts in a unique country setting in Schuylkill County, PA. Artwork includes baskets, candles,
soaps, stained glass, leather, pottery, jewelry, sculptures, chainsaw carvings, forged metal, paintings, ceramics, wildlife art, photography, textiles, silk scarves, handcrafted wooden furniture, wooden utensils, fused glass, wine jelly, and MORE!!!

Annual Collaborative Art Fundraiser and Auction: Each Spring The Arts Barn Education Center holds a Collaborative Art Fundraiser and Auction, with event proceeds helping our 501(c)(3) organization continue to make art education opportunities available. Pennsylvania artists are invited to participate in this event by creating artwork in conjunction with one or more artists. This fundraiser features live, silent and chance auctions, food, music, art, wine and gift baskets. Please contact us to inquire about becoming a collaborative artist.
