Welcome to the Art Center at 770 Cumberland Street. The building houses our gallery space and is the site of our gatherings and entertainments. The gallery presents a new exhibition each month with a focus on member artists and new talent emerging in the area.
We are open Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, during classes and events and of course on First Fridays for exhibition receptions.
Our October First Friday Artist /Performer is York-based singer songwriter, poet, painter and storyteller, John Terlazzo. A producer of “Modern Surrealist Gypsy Folk”, & described as “Marc Chagall gone aural” and “Leonard Cohen meets Rumi”, John has been leading the band Voices in the Hall these many years and has produced eight albums of music ranging from the recently completed “Ancient Chains” to 1983’s “Honor Among Thieves”. On the visual side of things John paints and draws in a style that recalls the work of Matisse, Chagall and the Fauves, and like his poetry and songs, his pastels and paintings conjure up exotic Eastern atmospheres. While sensuality and ecstatic vision permeates many songs he is just as likely to leave you laughing with his sense of the surreal and the absurd. You may listen to and buy his work at https://johnterlazzo.bandcamp.com/music
Visit the Boutiques on the Second floor of the Building and stock up on art supplies, pictures, arts & crafts, gently used clothing and household goods. All proceeds go to support the Art Center.
