Welcome...The art community we have fostered here for almost 90 years is alive and well! It is a community full of rich experiences, shared passions, creative conversations and special connections.
Our community doesn’t happen on a screen, it happens when we talk to each other at an exhibit; it happens when we get messy in a class; it happens when we sit around a table together to work on projects; it happens when we meet new friends at League events.
We welcome you to our studios and galleries anytime – we’d love to see you!
On display through March 10th

The North Shore Art League’s 90 year history and quality event reputation is apparent in all of the pre-show interest from artists and patrons. The show will be well promoted.
