|Leverett Crafts & Arts (LC&A) makes its home in a historically significant building where the love of artistic endeavor has been cherished since 1966. Our mission is to provide a community center for making, teaching and sharing the arts. Our artists and artisans support each other, inspire their students and enrich the extended community.||Our Barnes Gallery is an inviting space to showcase works produced by residents as well as visiting artists. The gallery is also a venue for events such as music, dance, weddings, parties and the annual Holiday Sale and Open Studios. LC&A celebrates diversity both in the art exhibited and the community from which the creative impulses spring.
Making things happen through fund raising, the Barnes Gallery always celebrates the things other galleries may take for granted.
Artists who exhibit at the Barnes Gallery pay a nominal fee plus a small commission on pieces sold. People who use the gallery for functions also pay a nominal fee. This money accumulates over the years and projects like this floor get paid for, polishing our act as the years go by.
Thanks to a Herculean fund raising effort around 2010, the Barnes Gallery proper has had beautiful wood flooring for years. This year the Hallway gets itself dressed up to match.
