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 many 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 into the fall.
The center is an ADA facility and is able to provide ASL interpretation upon reservation.
