Bel Air and Harford County's best kept secret is no longer a secret.

More than 100 people came to the Harford Artists' Art Gallery to participate in its reopening after it was closed during February for renovations. Twenty HAA member volunteers cleaned, rearranged and painted the gallery, while the Town of Bel Air graciously provided the contractor for the demolition work. Harford Artists' Gallery is the only professional art gallery in the Bel Air Arts and Entertainment District.

The gallery is a wonderful venue for local artists to display and sell their paintings, sculpture, pottery, jewelry and original gift items that are all created here in the county. It is in the little cottage on the grounds of Rockfield Manor.

Harford Artists' Association & Gallery is also a nonprofit organization which promotes the arts in the county through education, exhibits and supporting other non-profits in the area. HAA works with SARC, Harford Family House and offers an annual scholarship to an art major at Harford Community College. They also support and promote many community and charitable events.
