Founded in 1984 with a mission to promote community involvement in the arts and preserve the Greek Revival mansion in which it is housed, the Pomerene Center began operating with a strong neighborhood coalition and a few dedicated volunteers.
Throughout our 25 years of operation the Center has been renovated to provide 4 formal exhibition galleries, a resident artist’s studio and a media arts lab. A large garage at the back of the property has been converted into the Bachert Studio suitable for class instruction during the spring, summer and fall months. A basement studio space is used year round.
The addition of the Saba Terrace in 2007 and a tent to cover it in 2009 make the spacious lawn & garden amenable for use from May through September.
The center is an ADA facility and is able to provide ASL interpretation upon reservation.
As a strong member of the community the PCA is a founding member of the Coshocton County Arts & Culture Alliance, works in partnership community, schools, a wide array of human service providers, the Juvenile Court System, local business and is a member of the Coshocton Chamber of Commerce.
