Now more than ever art and creativity can brighten our lives and our new situations. ~ Pat Keefe
Art in its many forms provides comfort, resilience, wisdom, and the means for self-expression and connection
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.
Founded in 1979, The Coastal Arts League is a 100% volunteer organization, that occupies a ground floor gallery, staffed by sales representatives most afternoons.
