Our walls in the downstairs galleries have been renovated.   Thanks to a grant from the E. R. Carpenter Foundation, we are able to update the flooring and walls throughout our gallery spaces.   We reopened the galleries with an exciting set of exhibits to showcase the facility's ability to show the artwork of local and regional artists.    

The Cultural Activities Center exhibits artwork from regional artists in a variety of mediums.   The galleries are open during business hours and on weekends during events for the public to view for FREE.   The exhibits are changed out approximately every 6 weeks.   

Please check the website and plan to stop in for a visit to see the exhibits.  Join the fun at the CAC.
