Making art happen Since 1962

We have been dedicated to developing the cultural life in Genesee and Orleans Counties by facilitating the creation, presentation and experience of art, heritage and traditions. Art is a large part of our daily lives. We offer galleries for artists to showcase their work, various classes, workshops, children and teen programs for residents of Genesee and Orleans Counties. We believe that art is valuable and want to promote it in the community as much as possible.

About Our Events and Classes

At the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council (GOART), we strive to provide the best art and cultural experience for the members of the Genesee and Orleans Counites. Art is extremely important to our daily lives, and we recognize the value it brings. We offer many different classes throughout the year including art, music and performance classes. We have classes specifically tailored to children, so they can take part in the arts and discover their passion. Stop by the teen center for various classes and events aimed to promote the arts at the high school level and create a safe space for all, anyone from grades 9-12 are welcome.

"Once again, I thank you, the board and judges of GO ART! for graciously allowing my work to be included in your gallery - Summer of Love!  At the opening reception, I had the chance to meet and speak with committee members and artists, whom I had previously only known by their incredible pieces of work....

I also wanted to commend GO ART! for hosting the exhibit, Dream of America.  The Hispanic community in America receives a disproportionate and undeserved amount of negative press, and it was great to experience the photos and stories that depict the honest and loving truth of their lives in our community!

Thank you on so many levels!!!"

- Lynette Celedonia, GO ART! Member


"Thank you for providing a safe, fun and creative experience for my son....  When he woke up this morning he said, "I miss art camp." Keep up the great work!"
