LARAC brings art to the forefront
We are the heartbeat of the arts community.
You’ll find us hosting gallery receptions, planning festivals, offering art workshops for kids and skill-building workshops for adults, doling out grant funding, connecting artists with businesses and with each other, attending community meetings, and everything in between.
We advocate for the arts.
LARAC’s Lapham Gallery hosts exhibitions featuring local, regional, and national artistic talent working in a variety of different mediums and genres, and also has a gift shop.
Our festivals feature handmade artisan products such as pottery, fiber, jewelry, photography, apparel and gourmet foods as well as live music and all kinds of creative delights.
LARAC’s programming including artist workshops, children’s classes, critiques, business seminars for artists, musical performances and more.
We award NYSCA funding to grant recipients including arts organizations and individual artists, and offer guidance on how to apply.
When you support LARAC, you support the arts.
More than 2,000 artists are represented yearly by LARAC, and more than 50,000 community members of all ages are exposed to the arts each year because of the work we do. In 2019, we administered $83,000 to artists and organizations in Warren and Washington County, in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts. LARAC is a 501(c)3 tax deductible charity.
