Town Hall Quarterly Art Shows

Each quarter, the LAHC coordinates salon-style art shows in the Shirley F. Johnson Council Chambers in Lyons Town Hall, to exhibit artwork by local artists. Exhibitions and show themes are updated quarterly; the exhibits are open to public viewing during Town Hall hours of operation, when the room is available*.

The exhibitions are open to art of all mediums, and artists of all ages, abilities, and artistic interpretation; any artwork (that can be reasonably accommodated in the space) in the theme of the exhibition is welcomed. Reservations are not required. Artists keep 100% of sales.


*These and other arts events in town are brought to you by the LYONS ARTS & HUMANITIES COMMISSION
