Sponsors a local art and craft show in the Fall where I was showing my work. They offer a wide range of classes and workshops. The art exhibits change about every 6 weeks.

There were two special exhibits and the price is right at only 3 dollars a person. It also had local art for sale upstairs, but we didn't have time.

Our innkeepers suggested we go. We did the walking tour of Easton and stopped here along the way. For $3 per person we were delighted by the installation by Ahn. Amazing visual stimulation. Love it!

The Academy of the Arts is wonderful place to spend some time. The exhibits are interesting, admission nominal. The docents are most helpful. Highly recommend.
