New Art Center

The New Art Center supports the development of visual artists and cultivates a community that appreciates art. We offer a supportive culture that takes art and artists seriously. We serve over 2,500 students annually in hundreds of classes and workshops. Our faculty includes some of New England’s best art educators. In a setting that is welcoming and accessible by public transportation, we offer an inclusive, multi-generational approach to art education that has served children, teens and adults at all skill levels since 1977. We operate one of the few mid-sized nonprofit exhibition spaces in New England, which attracts over 4,000 visitors annually. The Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) is an open-call curatorial platform unique to the region. It is a collaborative vehicle through which curators and artists present thoughtful and innovative contemporary group exhibitions. It is the foundation of our Connections program for gallery education, and is often connected with our invitational Artist in Residence program.
