How to Find the Best Local Art Galleries in the Poconos

local art galleriesTraveling to other places can be an amazing opportunity for anyone. It allows you to get out of your comfort zone and see people and things that you may not normally get to see. We at Ledges Hotel love helping our guests find fun things to do here in the Pocono Mountains. Many of our guests enjoy being outside on the trails or on Lake Wallenpaupack. However, there is usually a balance between being inside and outside during many people’s stay in the Pocono Mountains. A great way to get to know our area while you are here is to check out the local art galleries. Let’s have a look at what our town of Hawley has to offer when it comes to local art galleries.

Art is something that can be seen and felt by others as well as it can be a great educational source as well. Here in the Pocono Mountains we have a couple of local art galleries to choose from. The first is located in the nearby Hawley Silk Mill, The Looking Glass Art Gallery. The Looking Glass is owned by Millie and Juan Espino and they have worked very hard to turn their space into a stunning art gallery. They have works that span the globe from New York City to Germany, Mexico, and even Hong Kong. They also enjoy showcasing local artists as well and love helping those who collect art finding the perfect piece for them. The artists that they feature can be found on their website and some of those include William Amptman, Rosalie Booth, Mimi Nardine, Steven White, and many more. Many of the artists have their own page on the site so you can peruse some of their works and understand the type of work they do. 

The next of the local art galleries we want to mention is right here at our own Ledges Hotel. Besides being a place to stay, there are so many other things that we want to do to give back to the community and one of them is to promote local art. As you meander through the common areas of our hotel you will be able to see all of the artists that we have. Not only do we showcase paintings but sculptures and photographs as well. Many of the artists we show are from the Pennsylvania area but some are from other places as well. Be sure to check out our site and see our artists. One artist in particular we would like to mention is Gregory Pelly. He is new to us at Ledges Hotel but you will quickly see why we had to have his art in our hotel. His oil paintings are stunning and reflect the world around us that we live in. He routinely paints scenes from Pennsylvania that are stunning. Most of the work that you will see in our hotel is for sale so if something interests you, be sure to ask one of our staff members about purchasing it.

As you can see, art is alive here in Hawley with our local art galleries, especially with us at Ledges Hotel. The next time you are looking to spend some time in the Pocono Mountains, consider coming to Hawley and staying with us at Ledges Hotel. Our modern hotel has a rich history as it was once a glass factory that thrived in its time. While you are here, enjoy the views of the gorge from our decks or from your room. We have room sizes for any group size from our economy room to our 2 bedroom suites. Contact us today and start planning a wonderful trip to the Pocono Mountains!
