Mission

The mission of the Coastal Arts League is to provide access to art through education, exhibits, and publications. We launch Juried shows, Club shows, and Benefit shows in our Main Street gallery, and admission is always free. We bring together local artists living and working on the Coastside. This makes it possible for children to grow up in a place where art is valued.

What we aim to solve

Isolation and loneliness are ubiquitous in American society. Everyone needs connections to others to healthy and happy. Recognizing the power of arts and artists to create positive change in the world, the mission of the Coastal Arts League is to encourage and support visual artists, with tools to make a living and a life, and to build a community full of meaning, joy, and connection.
