Community Art Gallery

Calling All Artists and Art Lovers

There’s an art gallery in Needham, at Christ Episcopal Church that is open to the public and presents work from artists of any age and faith, from novice to seasoned professional.

This is an amazing venue and it is yours at no charge. Share your talent with others and create connections to diverse communities. Solo and group shows are encouraged.

If your art has a price tag, we ask that you give at least 20% of your sales to a charity or cause of your choice, thus raising awareness to the community.  Past donations have gone to Wateraid.org, Brain & Behavioral Research Foundation, Every Mother Counts, Community Servings, Kids 4 Peace, Horizons for Homeless Children in Dorchester, Black Feather Horse Rescue, The Haiti Music School, Skincancer.org, Silent Spring, and Riverside to name a few. Exhibits change every two to three months.

We are always looking for artists of all abilities and particularly from diverse populations and programs to share their work in our gallery The exhibits are curated by expressive art therapist, Lucy Nims-LaFleche.  If you would like to display your art, whether it be photos, paintings, printing, drawing, or fiber art, please contact Lucy:  lucylafleche@aol.com.

The physical gallery is in the church’s Upper Parish Hall at 1132 Highland Avenue and is open to the public Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM – 2 PM and Sundays from 9 AM – noon.   Please drop by and see beautiful, thought provoking art; it will brighten your day.  Then, spread the word!

Meet the Artist: Yvonne L. Unger

The images I paint, be they realistic or abstract, are inspired by what I think of as “everyday nature”, those small observations of the natural world that occur in the midst of my daily activities. It might be fall leaves mired in a puddle or grassy fringe along a pond’s edge. I paint in an attempt to share that ever-present nature that I find so delightfully and unexpectedly beautiful. It is my hope to encourage the viewer to appreciate nature wherever they may find it, allowing it to further enrich their lives.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of paintings goes to support Riverside Community Care’s activities at the Elliott Clubhouse located here in Needham.

Join us for an art reception to meet artist, Yvonne Unger, and explore the Community Art Gallery on Sunday, November 20 at 11:30am.
