Civic Center could help fill Sharon Arts void

To the editor:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Jaffrey Civic Center, I wanted to express sadness over the sale and closing of our friend and neighbor art organization, the Sharon Arts Center.

In keeping the spirit of community art education alive, I also wanted to remind people that the Monadnock area surely does have other options for art and art education in the area. For over 50 years, the Jaffrey Civic Center has been a staple of art to many residents of and visitors to the region. To those who don’t know us, it is time to come visit us.

Located in a beautiful two-story historical building on Main Street in Jaffrey, we offer three community art galleries, an art studio for classes and workshops, meeting space, and an array of interesting events throughout the year. All of our exhibits are free and open to the public. We also provide a home to the Jaffrey Historical Society for those interested in the rich culture and heritage of the town.

We currently offer year-round painting classes in pastel, water-soluble oil, and watercolor, in addition to special workshops and classes like felting and pumpkin carving. Our summer classes include piano and audition camps, yoga, as well as regular theatre presentations from Project Shakespeare, a regional student theatre group in the area.

For more information about us, check out our website at or our Facebook page. Better yet, come visit us soon.
