The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center

The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center is a nonprofit organization in the heart of downtown Carpinteria. We offer art and arts programming to benefit the whole community, from the mountains to the sea: young and old, locals and visitors alike. 

Our mission is to be a premier small-town community arts center by:

● Fostering diverse community involvement
● Nurturing the creative process and its appreciation
● Providing a variety of educational experiences
● Serving as the vibrant heartbeat of the Carpinteria community

Come into the gallery to see the latest exhibition of local artwork.

Sign up for a one-day or ongoing workshop to develop new skills or learn a new way to express yourself.

Come hear live music one evening.

Join in a celebration at one of our artists’ receptions.

We have a film series, occasional poetry events, and community art installations as well, so take your pick of how you want to bring the arts into your life.

We are a center for the arts in Carpinteria, and we hope to see you here!

Gallery Hours:

Thursday - Monday
