NEW - Large works available at the Green Drake, now viewable online!

Here at the Green Drake, we strive to make a wide variety of art accessible and enjoyable to our neighbors as well as visitors to the Penns Valley area. Below you will find a sampling of work by our represented artists. While many of our fine artists and most of our craft artists are from here in central Pennsylvania, we also represent several national and international artists.

In addition, we schedule frequent special shows in part of the gallery space so there will always be something new to see at the Green Drake. Our special shows usually feature an opening reception with live music or other performance art on our small stage.

Art at the Green Drake Gallery and Arts Center in Millheim, PA

The Green Drake features several rooms of gallery space, over 2000 square feet in all, with original wood floors dating back to the 1880's and a high original sculpted tin ceiling in the main room. We've combined modern but tasteful track lighting with this old-time ambience to to create an atmosphere that makes you want to stay and visit for a while. To facilitate this, there are plenty of random chairs as well as a lounge area with table, chairs, and art reading materials in the mezzanine gallery.

Partner Gary Gyekis and his crew, who also did the renovation work across the street at the Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks, brought this transformation into being.

Along with original oil and acrylic paintings by resident artists Karl Eric Leitzel and Elody Gyekis, we have both 2-D and 3-D fine art by many other regional, national, and international artists. We also carry a wide range of fine craft items, from inexpensive earrings, notecards, and utilitarian pottery to high end art furniture and art pottery from nationally known names.
