Hampshire County, West Virginia, has a wealth of talented visual artists and loves to show them off in the community! Toward that end, the Hampshire County Arts Council offers a number of opportunities.

Art in Public Places is an on-going effort to present individual and joint exhibits in various public locations in the county, including lobbies of The Bank of Romney and FNB Romney, and the Hampshire County Public Library.  Check operating hours of those locations to view. Artists interested in participating in that program should email aipp@HampshireArts.org
