LowellArts: Looking Ahead

Despite the uncertain times, LowellArts has been able to continue showcasing art exhibitions in the gallery as well present a virtual version of our annual Fallasburg Arts Festival. We have also re-launched in-person art classes for youth, teens, and adults.

​We invite you to our current exhibit, the annual LowellArts Artist Market, running through January 23. We are looking forward to the next exhibit, our annual West Michigan Art Competition that will be on display Feb 13 to April 10. And, we anticipate that our community theater productions and gallery concerts will resume in 2021. 

Stay tuned!
