  • encourage and promote art education and appreciation
  • commend the talent and work of members, and other individuals and arts groups
  • offer opportunities for growth in the arts and an enthusiastic exchange of ideas
  • promote the development of local art talent
  • sponsor art programs by highly qualified presenters for our members and the community
