The Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit regional education center dedicated to the preservation and promotion of excellence in both the traditional and contemporary arts and crafts. To this end the Society shall:

 - Foster an environment that supports and inspires crafts people and artists.
 - Provide well-equipped work space.
 - Present opportunities for continued learning and enrichment.
 - Be an active force for the arts and Crafts in the larger community.
 - Nurture new generations of craftspeople and artist who will carry on these "living traditions".

About Us:

We were founded in 1935 when a group of artists and crafts-persons met and drew up a constitution with the objective "to foster in the community a more active interest in the arts and crafts and to encourage higher artistic standards in the arts and handicrafts".  In 1953, the Society was incorporated as a non-profit organization. For nearly twenty years after its founding, the Society carried on its activities in members' homes and in various public buildings in Lexington.

We hold a variety of exciting exhibits in our Parsons Gallery year-round providing an opportunity for members to exhibit or sell their work.

We offer a full schedule of classes and workshops at reasonable rates, for Adults and Teens, year-round (days, evenings and weekends), all levels, which are open to members and the public.  Junior Membership (ages 12-18) is for the purpose of taking classes.

Scholarships are available to graduating seniors from Lexington High School, and we provide continuing support to scholarship recipients in furthering their art careers at accredited art institutions.
