Come Visit our New Art Gallery

There’s a new art gallery in Needham at Christ Episcopal Church, 1132 Highland Ave.  Hours of operation are Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM and Sundays from 9:00 AM until 12:00 Noon.  The Gallery will share art that highlights awareness, education and increasing connections to diverse communities.  It will showcase the art of specific populations such as the elderly, veterans, developmentally delayed, as well as any artist who would like a portion of the proceeds to go to a specific charity or cause.    Art exhibits will rotate every one to two months.  The shows will be curated by expressive art therapist, Lucy Nims-LaFleche.  Using her expertise, she will reach out to the community to secure a variety of artists, making The Gallery unique to Needham.  If you would like to display your art, whether it be photos, paintings, please let contact Lucy:

This is an exciting new venue for Christ Church and the community of Needham.  Spread the word!

The Gallery’s first exhibit, on display until January 31, features quilts and textile art of Lucy Nims-LaFleche and Pam Goody.  All of their works are original designs and hand sewn. Most are available for purchase. The artists will give 10% of all sales to Hurricane Relief and Friends of Music.  Christmas is coming; give the gift of art to a loved one.
