An Afternoon of Arts in Brownsville, PA


Join us for an afternoon of arts events in Brownsville, PA on July 17th.

First, visit the Gazalie Building (131 Market Street) from 1pm-4pm to view our newest ‘Images of Yesterday: A Peek into Brownsville’s Past’ photography exhibit. Take in the river from the Gazalie Building’s second level windows and enjoy photographs documenting the development of a portion of Market Street as well as Brownsville’s 1914 ‘Old Home Week’.

After the photography exhibit, grab a bite to eat at any number of local Brownsville restaurants, and then be sure to meet us on the lawn at Nemacolin Castle from 6pm-8pm to enjoy an evening of acoustic rock and blues with The Dave Iglar Band. The Dave Iglar Band has been touted as one of the best rock and blues bands in the region. The concert is free and open to the public.

Music on the Mon is supported by the Fayette County Hotel Tax through the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts through its regional arts funding partnership, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) and the Community Foundation of Fayette County.

‘Images of Yesterday, A Peek Into Brownsville’s Past: The Gazalie Building’ is sponsored by The Sprout Fund Seed Award for Greene and Fayette counties. All proceeds will help BARC to continue its revitalization efforts in Brownsville.
