Welcome to the Eastern Shore Art League of Virginia

We are more than 100 strong. Our members range from beginners to professionals to patrons who enjoy collecting and supporting artists' efforts. We work in oil paint, watercolor and acrylic, in clay, stained glass, tile, metal, wood, pastels, graphite and more. Many of our members teach classes and workshops. We meet monthly to enjoy an art education program, and have additional planned outings and events every month. There's always a lot to do.

CONGRATULATIONS!   Nancy Richards West  and  Barbara Schmitz  each  had one painting selected for the Sumi-e Society of America’s prestigious 53rd Annual Juried Exhibition.   Here are images of their entries, and there will be more information about the show in September.
