Arts Center East is home to a rich arts community. We are the heart of the arts east of the river.

We are a place where visual artists from across the state – and beyond – exhibit and sell their work through juried exhibits and members exhibits.

Unique handmade creations of pottery, jewelry, wood crafts and other gifts made by local and regional artisans fill our seasonal craft fairs. Musical and theatrical performances delight audiences of all ages, and our classrooms hum with the joy of artistic creation and growth.
