The Elk County Council on the Arts is a sales gallery located in beautiful downtown Ridgway Pennsylvania. We offer a wide variety of affordable items from 50+ local artisans. These items include one of a kind jewelry, pottery, photography, mixed media, painting, wood-turning and much more. 

ECCOTA is a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts partner. Through our partnership with the PCA we are able to bring the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts grant program and Arts in Education residencies to our region. We also offer the annual Poetry Out Loud competition to local schools. These programs offer opportunities to engage the public in art, and bring public funds back into this generally underserved area.

Check our calendars! We offer monthly exhibits, classes, and events, and hope to see you at one soon.
