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, 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 10% of your sales to a charity or cause of your choice, thus raising awareness to the community.  Past donations have gone to the Needham Community Council, Ecclesia Ministries, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Fair Foods, Riverside Community Care, Boston Health Care for the Homeless and Midwives of Haiti to name a few.Exhibits rotate every one to two months.

The exhibits are curated by expressive art therapist, Lucy Nims-LaFleche.  If you would like to display your art, whether it be photos, paintings, or fiber art, please contact Lucy:

The gallery in the church’s Upper Parish Hall at 1132 Highland Avenue is open to the public Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM – 2 PM and Sundays from 9 AM – noon. Summer hours are Mondays through Thursdays 9 AM – 1 PM and Sundays 9 AM – 11 AM.
