We are a volunteer organization, co-sponsored by the City of El Cerrito, that supports local artists through our programs and activities.

These include monthly demonstrations and lectures, an annual non-juried art show, rotating member exhibits at local venues, an active plein air group and members’ booth spaces for the 4th of July celebration.
