If you live in the Charlottesville are or are just visiting, a visit to the McGuffy Art Center is definitely in order. The art displays are varied and wonderful and rooms are often open to see what art is being created in each studio. You will see medium that is truly unique and amazing. Art is available for purchase as well.

You have to bear in mind that Charlottesville is a small place so this is not the kind of museum you would find in New York or DC. That being said, there are great local artists and lots of awesome things going on.

Every town needs a place like this and it's great that this one provides so much for the community and is so central to downtown.

My buddy blows glass in his studio ,in the basement of this place. He does really great work and at holiday times you can choose your own colors and blow ya own glass with a fresh new mouth piece. Its a lot of history and stuff to observe in this museum/art center. If you love art come enjoy.

This is a fun place to visit. We enjoyed the current art displays as well as active studios. Working artists are creating; many have open studios and will answer questions. The displayed art rotates, so we'll be going back soon.

I could wander through this center all weekend!!! Such a treasure in downtown Charlottesville!! Contains numerous studios for local artists to rent and display their incredible work!! The hallways are rustic and charming while also displaying beautiful and thought-provoking artwork on its walls. Natural light streams in through the stunning stairwell windows. The artists are kind and informative. Can't wait to go back soon!!

I've lived here for about seven years, and somehow never visited McGuffey until 2022. I showed up very late to the First Friday opening, and was thrilled to see some very good work. The community that has been long established there feels genuine and authentic and present. Pieces were very affordable, and during the First Friday opening, nearly all of the studios were open to visitors and conversations. Highly recommended, thoroughly encouraged.

Great place for local artist, activities & classes

Excellent idea! Artist co-op. Art is for sale. Most rooms were closed. Arts of every imaginable medium. Would probably be much better if there were an actual event.

I’m an art educator from Georgia. Walking through this art center was quite inspiring. The smell of material, sight of artists of all ages, and so many types of art!

A great space both for viewing finished art and art in process, and for talking informally with artists. Three full floors of really varied and creative works in multiple media.

Great place to visit when you love artworks and happen to be in downtown Charlottesville. Parking a bit tough on busy day, outside of the Center there was pretty nice courtyard. It is by walking distance to the downtown mall, couple studios for different residents artists. Worth a visit :).
