Annual Appeal Annual Appeal 2021 The arts are more than a hobby, more than a welcome distraction, they are a vital part of our lives and our community. The arts have the power to enhance the emotional, mental, and spiritual health of everyone who comes through our doors, or visits us virtually – all of which we could not accomplish without the continued support of the community.

Your generous donation ensures our prominence in the community, empowers us to serve all who enter our doors, whether to take a class, see an exhibit, display their artwork, see a performance, or peruse our craft fairs and tag sales.

Classes & Events

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.
