was organized in the spring of 2009 with a nucleus of award-winning artists. It is located in an old Gothic church in the heart of Melrose. Browse the light filled working studios of painters, engravers, and assemblage artists and observe "art in progress". A central gallery displays the finished works, alongside fine woodworking, metalwork, photography, and painted furniture.
The Center seeks to showcase fine arts and crafts that are original, excite the imagination, make the spirit soar, push boundaries, stimulate creative thought, and that inspire. The Center offers poetry and writing groups, dance classes, fitness classes,contra dances, music concerts as well as art classes and workshops.
