Small, intimate museum. Different each time we visited. 2 or 3 exhibits on ground floor and 1 or 2 upstairs. They have an annual members show for local artists, as this is a very active artist area with lots of studios and galleries. We enjoyed a Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit on interiors, a German print maker and a local multi-media contemporary artist.
Very interesting shows right now

There are 4 shows right now. The contemporary furniture by german-born Vicco von Voss is artful and sensuous. The american landscape painters from Bierstadt to Wyeth is very interesting- from a private collection so there are unknown paintings by this group of fine artists. The Rosa Parks exhibit includes the original illustrations used for the Caldecott Medal winning children's book, "Rosa." Very moving. The metal sculptures by Jay Lagemann are not to my taste.
Art Pearl in Easton

The Academy is small, but the four exhibits, ranging from contemporary wood sculpture/furniture, to illustrations from the children's book Rosa Parks, to the collection of landscapes, was first rate.
Small but nice

There were two special exhibits and the price is right at only 3 dollars a person. It also had local art for sale upstairs, but we didn't have time.
Small But Wonderful

Our innkeepers suggested we go. We did the walking tour of Easton and stopped here along the way. For $3 per person we were delighted by the installation by Ahn. Amazing visual stimulation. Love it!
