Welcome to the Fourth Avenue Gallery.
The Pocahontas County Artisan Cooperative opened its doors in May, 2007. Based in Green Bank, West Virginia, the co-op showcased the original work of artists and
craftspeople from Pocahontas County and the surrounding region. On September 1, 2011 the Co-op added the Fourth Avenue Gallery in Marlinton, WV. In 2012 the Pocahontas County Artisan Co-op moved it's center of operations to the 4th Avenue Gallery in Marlinton, WV.
Artists whose work is on display at the cooperative get to keep 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork. Instead of charging a commission on artists’ work, the gallery is supported through the payment of modest monthly dues by all members. Members are also asked to work at least one day each month to keep the gallery open. This provides a unique opportunity for visitors to meet and talk to the artists.
On special weekends, visitors might also catch a glimpse of one of the artists working with metal in a portable forge, making a broom or demonstrating one of the other many mediums featured. It's the perfect place to find that special gift or a unique piece to take home with you.
If you would like to be part of the group of artisans in Marlinton, please check out the information on our web site. Please click here for more information.
We have a "Last Friday" special event every month with entertainment, demonstrations and food. Watch our Faceook page for the re-opening of our Slatyfork branch soon. There's always something new and exciting going on!
