The Art of Craft Beer

The Art of Craft Beer

March 21 - May 29 2019

The Gallery at Villageworks in Acton, MA

There are more craft breweries in the United States now than ever before in American history. Craft breweries are defined as small, independent and traditional by the national non-profit Brewers Association. The craft brewery segment continues to grow, which currently makes up 98 percent of all breweries in the United States.

Brewing beer is one of many crafts that are supported by independent craft breweries. Many independent craft breweries collaborate with artists and arts organizations as part of supporting their local communities, resulting in incredible can and schwag art, pop-up galleries and performances, as well as patron coaster art.

To celebrate our local independent craft breweries’ commitment to supporting our creative community, we are hosting an Art of Craft exhibit focused on brewing inside The Gallery at Villageworks in Acton, MA. In a gallery nestled above our presenting brewery, True West Brewery, we are exhibiting artwork created by craft brewery staff, collaborating artists and patrons from across New England and beyond. Thank you to The Gallery at Villageworks for providing your beautiful gallery and event space for public programs.
