A taste of the past, a vison for the future.

Founded by the celebrated New Brighton industrialist, Edward Dempster Merrick (1832 - 1911), The Merrick is home to a stunning collection of French, German, English, and American paintings from the 18th and 19th Century. The collection features examples of romantic, realistic, and impressionistic art by prominent American and European artists, including Prud'hon, Courbet, Winterhalter, Sully, and Curran. Most prominent is a collection of Hudson River School paintings featuring the works of Durand, Moran, Kensett, Casilear, and Trost Richards.

For more than a century, The Merrick Free Art Gallery, Museum and Library has provided residents of Beaver County and the surrounding region with a landmark destination in which to enjoy the civilizing influence of the arts.

Each year, thousands of people visit The Merrick to view the permanent collection, attend special exhibits and invitational showings, or learn more about art and artistry in the many classes and workshops offered.
