The League conducts monthly meetings with a program about art. These hour long programs are intended to give members and the general public information. Many are live demonstrations about various art forms, as well as art history, presentations by museum curators, or art school educators.  Meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month (except August and September) at 12:30 PM.

We are excited to announce that we have been invited to sell our work at

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
