Fuller Lodge Art Center Turns 40!

Fuller Lodge Art Center (FLAC) is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a new look and a special exhibit Look Whos 40!, which opened Friday with an artists reception. The shopping area of the gallery has been reshaped and updated. FLAC was founded in 1977. The County Council approved an agreement for the Los Alamaos Arts Council to operate the gallery at Fuller Lodge with a $2,400 subsidy. FLAC became independent from the Arts Council in 1982.
