The Lyndon House

Arts Foundation

The Lyndon House Arts Foundation is an independent nonprofit that provides funding and resources to support the innovation, reach, and diversity of the Lyndon House Arts Center.

Dear Patrons

During hard and stressful times, it is human nature to either introspectively dwell on matters of stress or find avenues of interest and delight to alleviate burdens. The Lyndon House Arts Foundation’s mission includes encouragement of artistic expression and promoting an active appreciation of the creative efforts of others.  The Teen Clubs are continuing to be supported by the LHAF, in virtual form, and have stayed popular and active. Also continuing is the Annual Juried Exhibition of 2021. The entries will be submitted in virtual form, but the show will continue as usual with in-person viewing. Other projects in the planning stages will continue to support local artists. Another development is a new program that will bring different and diverse sets of eyes and hands to the understanding and appreciation of our community’s art. We have positioned ourselves to be ready to move forward.  

As the pandemic continues, it has confounded our fundraising efforts with event cancellations. We are determined to rejuvenate these postponed events at the Center that makes art a visible part of our lives.  We are poised to announce our Virtual Annual Print Sale for this fall, featuring an exceptional local artist.   

To continue our mission in support of the Lyndon House Arts Center, additional resources and funding are still needed to overcome these setbacks. Please be part of this effort and make a donation (button above), or mail a check. We know we can survive this unsettling year and continue to work together to renew and rebuild the Lyndon House programs for all.

Stay safe and healthy,



Fully Funded

These programs would not exist if it were not for the funding through the Foundation. The Annual Juried show is one of the most popular annual shows and continues to grow in the number of artists submitting work each year. The juror is flown in from one of the leading art museums in the U.S.

  • Annual Juried Exhibition
  • Original Lickskillet Artists Market
  • Teen Sewing and Fashion Club

Partially Funded

For these programs we supplement the Center’s budget to make the program more extensive, and sometimes even possible. The support could be as simple as helping to pay for an instructor/assistant, or as extensive as buying a kiln or computer with animation software.
