We are more than 100 strong. Our members range from beginners to professionals to patrons who enjoy collecting and supporting artists’ efforts. We work in oil paint, watercolor and acrylic, in clay, stained glass, tile, metal, wood, pastels, graphite and more. Many of our members teach classes and workshops. We meet monthly to enjoy an art education program, and have additional planned outings and events every month. There’s always a lot to do.   JOIN US!
