We're sorry, this event has been canceled. 


For the health of the community and our members we have decided to cancel our Annual Art Exhibition and Sale and cancel our April meeting due to the continuing spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Based on CDC recommendations all events consisting of 50 or more people should be canceled or postponed for the next eight weeks and further recommendations from the government suggest avoiding groups of 10 or more people. This information is changing daily if not hourly.

At this time we are not making any changes to the calendar for the remainder of 2020, but may do so if the need arises. We will be certain to keep you informed through email, our website and our social media accounts of any future updates.

For anyone who has already sent in their registration 2020 Annual Art Exhibition we will either return your check if it has not been deposited or issue a refund.
We encourage everyone to stay safe and healthy. If you need any assistance or support during this time please reach out to your fellow artists.


For future reference here are our rules and criteria for previous events...
