Welcome to the Art Society of Monmouth County


Our mission is to promote the arts and encourage creativity.


We are an active group of artists and photographers, many with professional designations,

who love learning, enjoy creating art, and pay it forward with

scholarships for college art students.


Please join us at our lively and informative meetings with lectures and

demonstrations by professional artists. We meet monthly during the Fall and Spring.

to 15 artists. To learn more, click on the EXHIBITS tab for 2019-2020:
