Our West Chester facility is located at the edge of downtown West Chester, on Bradford Avenue/Route 52 at Gay Street. A mid-century modern design built in 1953, it houses two formal art galleries, a gift store featuring regional artists’ work, multiple art studios, an outdoor patio and a kitchen area.
One of the benefits of having your event at CCAA is that your guests may view/purchase artwork in the galleries and gift store as well as tour the facility and art studio spaces.
Although the galleries are not available for rent during the summer months, the outdoor patio and studio spaces are available summer evenings and weekends.
