The Cranbury Arts Council provides arts-oriented programs, workshops, and performances aimed at enriching the cultural experiences of our community and keeping the creative spirit alive in ourselves and our children. Our mission is to foster, support, educate, inspire, and promote artists and art appreciation in our community. The Arts Council is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Our funding is provided by donations and a bi-annual fundraising event.

As the coronavirus continues to expand, Cranbury's Town Hall and therefore the Cranbury Arts Council's Gourgaud Gallery will be closed until further notice. Unfortunately, our Community Art Workshops have all been postponed as well, but they will be rescheduled for later dates. Since our summer camps are still several months away, we have not made any changes at this time, but will continue to monitor the situation (along with the Cranbury School) and will send updates as needed. We look forward to creating art together again soon!
