Welcome to the Eastern Shore Art League of Virginia
Promoting the visual arts on the Eastern Shore
COME VISIT OUR NEW CLUBHOUSE!
Historic Onancock School, Room 104
Our clubhouse is open to all paid members and accessible with a simple combination code available on our members only page.
It’s an ideal location for members to hold workshops, have informal get-togethers or work on art projects.
This beautiful light-filled space is equipped with high speed wifi, a screen and projector, a glass-enclosed display case as well as a small refrigerator for drinks.
As a former classroom, it has a large bulletin board, ideal for workshop critiques and drawing session reviews. In addition, there’s a large blackboard perfect for brainstorming during meetings or in small groups
We have an art supply “put n’ take” and we’re in the process of setting up a lending library of art books.
We are excited to announce that we have been invited to sell our work at
the Onancock Farmers and Artisans Market!
We have June 10 and July 15 reserved, when we were planning to sell in the square. That will be cancelled and this will take its place. We’re already welcomed on their website – take a look! http://onancockmarket.com
