Operations Statement:

Gallery exhibitions, festivals, workshops, art meetings, special events and art classes aim to provide area citizens with a positive experience in the visual arts, encouraging them to appreciate the arts and to develop their creative talents.

The Lyndon House Arts Center places importance on education and outreach, arts activities which reflect the values of integrity, quality, diversity and creativity held by the community. These values serve as a guide for the selection and exhibition of artwork for the galleries.

Children visiting the galleries must be accompanied and supervised by an adult for the safety of the artwork and for artwork content.
