Benefits of Membership
Founded in 1979, The Coastal Arts League is a 100% volunteer organization, that occupies a ground floor gallery, staffed by sales representatives most afternoons.
There are many opportunities to help the Coastal Arts League. We rely on volunteer docents to greet and guide gallery visitors. Volunteers have fun helping with exhibits, receptions, and special events. The Coastal Arts League is the place to meet people, immerse in the arts, and serve the community.
