GALA (Gardner Area League of Artists) was organized to promote the arts and culture as an essential component of a healthy community. We believe that artistic expression is a community’s greatest legacy for future generations. GALA increases awareness and appreciation of local arts and culture by way of exhibits, instruction, musical, and spoken word performances.

GALA has secured a permanent space at 135 Front Street in Winchendon for the benefit of the residents of the cities and towns of north central Massachusetts. GALA has the goal of using the permanent space in Winchendon for the benefit of the arts community to help them connect with the public through exhibits, performances, teaching, and marketing of their art. GALA believes that these activities will educate, enrich, and encourage support of the arts and culture by the community and talent at large.

We completed our first phase of transforming this antique post and beam barn into our new art gallery and meeting space. The interior's first level has been wired, insulated and drywalled.  The new barn door has been made and installed. In order to open the gallery in 2017, we need to raise funds to purchase the reamining elements including a gallery track lighting system, epoxy paint for the flooring, sound equipment for music performances, and artwork hanging supplies. 

We are thankful to all the members, area businesses, and neighbors who have already donated their time and services to getting our art gallery this far. Any money you can donate in order for us to finish the project is greatly appreciated.
