Our Committee

The Amherst Arts Night Plus Committee is comprised of representatives from various Arts Night Plus venues. Our main objective at meetings is to think of new, different, and exciting ways to engage the art community in the Amherst area. We plan performances and other events during Arts Night Plus and outside of Arts Night Plus.

Meetings are held once a month and are open to the public. Want to be a part of the committee? Email  for more information.

Mission Statement

Amherst Arts Night Plus: A Community Opportunity

Our mission is:

  • to promote a monthly Arts Night in the Amherst area;
  • to enrich residents and visitors with cultural opportunities;
  • to develop a mutually beneficial partnership with local businesses and art venues.

Members of Arts Night Plus who attend meetings are able to have their voices heard on changes and improvements made to Arts Night Plus as a whole; are able to suggest and plan new events; and get to make lasting networking connections with other participating businesses and organizations.
