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.


As a member, you may participate in any of up to four major Art Exhibitions in 

November, January, March, and April. All exhibits are judged by professionals who award prizes and recognition ribbons.


For sponsored exhibits, we provide monetary awards in five categories

(three awards per category) to 15 artists.


For members who are professional artists with websites, we offer a free link on our

Artists and Supporter Links page 

We also offer promotion of their shows to our email list.


Membership is $30/year for individuals; $40 for families.

Our year starts Sept. 1 and ends August 31.  Join us!
