The Coastal Arts League is a 501 (c)(3) community service organization, located in Zaballa Square, at 300 Main Street in Half Moon Bay. We encourage and support a wide range of visual artists, professional and recreational alike, in a welcoming environment celebrating the arts and making them accessible to the community. Gallery exhibits change monthly and are free to the public.
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 as well.
