Arts & Culture Council

The Arts & Culture Council (ACC) was established in early 1996 as a companion to the L.E. Shore Memorial Library.   In 2018 the name was changed from Arts Advisory Council to the current Arts & Culutre Council to include the various types of cultural programming the Council had begun to promote in The Gallery. 

The intent of establishing the council was to showcase artists both local and abroad, as well as to provide guidance for art programming in the public. Members past and present have included some of the most prominent artists from the community, making for an eclectic and innovative mixture of programming and exhibitions.
