"Together Again"


See progress towards our $60,000 goal!

$53,700 towards $60,000!

We are excited to announce two matching gift pledges for the Together Again Appeal!  There is a matching gift of $2,500 from Nancy Hussey (pictured right) and a matching gift of $60,000 from an anonymous donor.

Will you please join in and provide your support to help us take advantage of these two generous pledges?

There are a number of ways to support the Arts Center during the Together Again Appeal: buying art in the gallery, sponsoring a child for the Arts By The Sea summer camp, or by giving a general donation.


Throughout 2020, the overall focus for the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center has been to maintain a community presence by pivoting to a virtual Arts Center under the theme of ‘Together ApART’. For 2021, there are signs of hope where the Arts Center can start to transition back to more of an in person presence under the theme of ‘Together Again’. As more people in our community are vaccinated and health protocols are relaxed, the Arts Center will be there for the community with longer hours in the Charles Lo Bue Gallery, exhibit receptions, in person outside classes, and slowly reintroducing community events in the Courtyard.

The Arts Center has been there for the community, but we cannot continue without the support of the community. Please take this opportunity to support the Arts Center during this time. We cannot wait until we can celebrate being ‘Together Again’ at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center!
