The Artists Council is over 350 members strong and supports the museum and local artists in a number of ways. The Workshops program offers a variety of classes where adults can learn and enhance their skills in a number of disciplines, from beginning to advanced levels. The Artists Council Exhibition is a juried exhibition and sale of artwork created by AC members. 99 Bucks is a sale of small canvases, created by the famous and the infamous – but artists' names are not revealed until after the sale. Art Party provides free art instruction for kids and adults. In addition, there are member events, including demonstrations and lectures, given throughout the year. The Artists Council Center is located on the Lower Level of the museum and is a wonderful site for workshops and meetings.
Welcome to the Artists Council ONLINE GALLERY. We are delighted to be able to share the artwork of some of our members with you. When you are in the gallery, you will see a group of small images.
