As Walk In Art Center Juried Artists our goal is to grow and develop as artists both individually and collectively. We will strive to achieve this shared commitment through the use of our creativity and imagination as artists to stimulate, educate, illuminate, thought-provoke, and entertain.
The Artist Association is a self-governing group of artists that are members under the Walk In Art Center umbrella. There are many opportunities and gatherings to keep you informed and add to your growth.
Part of your commitment as a member of the Artist Association is Community Service. These Artist Association meetings discuss the opportunities available and generate new ideas to help grow the Walk In Art Center and the individual artists together. In addition to developing ideas and activities about art for the artists. The association meetings are intended to focus the energies of that community service commitment into art related projects like the framing workshop that could benefit our community of artist as well as extending and improving the reputation of the Walk In Art Center. The Open Studio Night, Movie Night, & Drink &Draw are all evidence of the kind of activities and energies the Artist’s Association is designed to develop, inspire and promote. Artist Association meetings are the fourth Wednesday of every month (unless noted).
