Established in 1999, our organization brings together and provides opportunities for people of all ages to experience and appreciate the arts.

Our home base is the beautiful historic Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor in which we hold over 80 performances, 15 art exhibits, and over 85 workshops annually.

We have a fully equipped art studio housing our after-school and evening art classes. Space is also available for rent to artists and arts instructors to teach, or for private studio space in our Artist Incubator facility. Each facility provides affordable studio space with public access for artists and the creative to work, teach, and sell. We are a centerpoint of activity for the entire area, an engaging cultural hub for residents and visitors alike.
