Representing over 100 local and regional artists in the Gallery Gift Shop, we provide Opportunities for Artists to sell their handmade work. In our main Exhibit Space, we host 9 to 10 themed shows per year that are open to artists of all skills levels from all over the world. We also provide a smaller show space in our Portal Gallery for artists, either established or up-and-coming, to have their own solo shows. In all of these spaces throughout the Art Center, we welcome the public at no cost to come and find inspiration in the pieces that are on display. If you want to share your enthusiasm for art with the community, we can always use Volunteers!
While we strive to inspire the artists within all of you, we also want to reach out and teach the gift of art to our future generations. Therefore, we offer 9 weeks of Art Camp during the Summers. For the adults, we offer Adult Classes during the Spring and Fall semesters ranging from Watercolor to Welding, Clay to Carving, Glass to Graphite, and more. If you have a special talent to share with the community, please consider Teaching a class. For those who don’t want to commit to a course, we also offer ongoing Art Interest Groups such as Life Drawing, Photo Club, the Adobe Users Group, and Clay Club.
We also host two annual Arts & Crafts Fairs. Our first fair of the year coincides with the Los Alamos County Fair and Rodeo and is held on the lawn of the picturesque Fuller Lodge. For this Summer Fair, around 100 juried artisans display their handcrafted work in a field of white tents as the County Parade floats down Central Ave. Our Fall Fair is an indoor venue with around 65 artists selling to those who have started their holiday shopping early.
We’re located at 2132 Central Ave. in Los Alamos. Give us a call at (505) 662-1635. You can also check us out on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, or use the email contacts below.
