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.

As a member, you may participate in any of up to six major Art Exhibitions in
October, November, January, March, April, and occasionally Summer. All exhibits are judged by professionals who award prizes and recognition ribbons.
Our next exhibit in March is our annual "Oldies but Goodies" Art Show. This year we added a category for "original forgeries" called Copy Cats***! If you've copied a famous painting, we'd love to see it. Monetary awards will be given in each of our categories. Details are here.
For sponsored exhibits, we provide monetary awards in five categories (3 per category)
to 15 artists. To learn more, click on the tab:
For professional artists with websites, we offer a link on our
Artists and Supporter Links page with a nominal donation as well as
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!

from the Metropolitan Museum's "Copiest" Program.
