The LAC strives to support all forms of art and culture within our community so everyone can experience its many diverse forms. The LAC accomplishes our mission through various programs. i.e.: the Cultural Presentation Series which occurs at the Lakeville Public Library, “Made In Lakeville” Holiday Craft and Gift Sale, Open Studio held periodically in late spring, and our major annual event celebrated its twelfth year, the Lakeville Arts & Music Festival. Visit the FESTIVAL PAGE for photos from 2015 celebration! Be sure to check each page of this website to learn when and where each event will take place.

During the month of July, the Great Ponds Gallery in the Lakeville Public Library at 4 Precinct Street in Lakeville will exhibit approximately 90 acrylic and oil paintings of a group of senior residents of Island Terrace. Some of the artists are somewhat new to these mediums which have revealed their hidden talents. Be sure to experience the gallery this month to be awed by the remarkable talent located within our community.
Butch McCarthy & The Accidental Band will play a blend of pop music and Americana in the folk-rock tradition.
Formed several years ago in the New Bedford area, The Accidental Band has gone through many metamorphoses through time. The balance of the group features Butch McCarthy on guitar and vocals, Steve Mazza on bass and JB Borges plays the drums. Their recent albums are Middleville released in 2015 and No More just released in April 2016. It's a solo album for Butch but featuring all the members of the group as well as several other local musicians. Copies will be available at the performance.
AND don’t forget as you head home from work there is no need to make dinner, stop in at Somethin’s Brewin’ Book Café to grab something to eat and drink before and during the concert to enjoy as you relax to listen to the final summer music filled Tuesday evening in Lakeville. The Cafe will be OPEN ALL day July 26 to support this community event until 7:30PM.
