PAPA Gallery

If you’re looking for a unique flavor of Western Kentucky, make sure to stop by the PAPA Gallery, home of the Paducah Area Painters Alliance. Located conveniently downtown near several other points of interest, you will find our walls graced with original artworks by local area painters. Not only will you find award winning artists’ works but you’ll also be greeted by one of the artists themselves! All staff are also painters and many will be found working on their latest painting when you arrive – which they are happy to share with you. Our friendly, down-to-earth members will give you insights to the paintings as well as the painters if you wish, or will be happy to let you browse at your leisure. Consider memorializing your trip with an original work of art – the gift that keeps on giving. We hope you’ll come by for a visit!
