The Lumberyard Arts Center will once again host the ANNUAL HOLIDAY ART-A-FAIR.


The fair takes place at the Lumberyard Arts Center in downtown Baldwin City.  Artists working in and exhibiting all media are invited, including ceramics, painting, photography, jewelry, metalwork and more. $175 in cash prizes will be awarded to the most outstanding artists of the fair. Participating artists are invited to conduct live demonstrations, which will be publicized by the Lumberyard Art Center.


A variety of music will be scheduled on the weekends throughout the fair. The idea is to have a festive, inviting environment for all. Friday Night, Nov. 13th will be featured as a special event SNEAK PEEK with beverages and small snacks.

Welcome to the Lumberyard Arts Center Website

Thanks to the many volunteers and countless hours of hard, dirty work and thanks to donations large and small from the community, Phase I is now complete and open for business.


Fund raising continues toward the goal of completion of Phase II, which will add a 184-seat theater in the back half of the building.


If you would like to volunteer with the Lumberyard Arts Center, we need help with routine maintenance, hosting exhibits, teaching classes, etc. You can also help by making a tax-deductible donation to the Lumberyard Arts Center.
