Important Updates

The Pentucket Arts Foundation is sending good wishes and positive vibes for health and wellness to all in our community at this difficult time. Regrettably, due to social distancing mandates related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to cancel two events planned for April:

1.) Book signing event at Old Town Hall with first time author and Pentucket alumnus, Jessica Rotondi: We have postponed this event to a date TBD.   When the time comes, we look forward to  honoring Jessica in our community with this special event.  Anyone who purchased a book through our website online can either wait to receive it at the future event or have a signed copy sent directly to them. If you opt for the latter, please send your address to Please be sure to include the date of your purchase.  We are also working on collaborating with Corinn Flaherty (Library Director of the G.A.R. Memorial Library in West Newbury) on a Zoom reading session with Jessica in the near future -- so check back here for updates!

2.) The Fairy Tale Hayride at Long Hill Orchard: Unfortunately we are unable to reschedule this event for 2020 but we are hoping to hold a haunted hayride at the farm later this fall. Stay tuned!

Voices of West Newbury

A heartwarming public art film starring long time residents reflecting on local traditions and lore. This 30 minute documentary debuted at our "Past is Prologue" exhibit during the summer of 2019.


This past summer, the Pentucket Arts Foundation earned one of a coveted handful of creative partnership grants from the Essex County Community Foundation. ECCF in partnership with the Barr Foundation is funding 11 projects from Lynn to Newburyport as part of the Creative County Initiative (CCI) -- a groundbreaking collaboration designed to elevate the region’s arts and culture sector and support creative expression and the local creative economy.

We believe in the power of the arts to transform lives and are dedicated to using this power to help make our Community a more vibrant and creative place to live, work, and learn.
