The Eastern Shore Art League Gallery Co-Op has been accepted as a site affiliate on the Eastern Shore Artisan’s Trail.  This entitles the gallery to a web page and inclusion in the  events calendar on the Artisans Center of Virginia’s state web site.  The Gallery will also be on a site map and brochure advertising the trail.   

The Gallery has several openings for ESAL members who satisfy the gallery membership requirements.  One of which is to staff the gallery once per month and host a Second Friday event.  If you are interested, please contact Marge Bradach (757-665-4507) or speak to any current member.
