  • Enrich the cultural life of our region
  • Encourage the appreciation of art in the community
  • Provide educational programs for artists
  • Provide opportunities for local exhibitions of original art
  • Promote art as a career pathway for area high school students


The League actively supports its goals by:

  • Arranging art exhibits in public places.
  • Raising money to provide funding for high school graduate scholarships, prizes, and awards.
  • Providing demonstrations and workshops with nationally known artists as instructors to further the education and experience for members.
  • At monthly meetings, encouraging a forum for artists to interact and exchange ideas, materials and information openly.
