We are a private non-profit visual artists' organization formed to help define fine art to the viewing general community, to protect the interest of artists, and to provide scholarships to promising student artists. We run the organization using member and non-member volunteers. Our organization was formed in 1974 by a core group of professional artists with resumes listing national and/or international recognition as well as regional awards and/or higher art education.
