We are a community of artists of all disciplines. We aim to provide mutual support, share information, and present a collective voice for the arts in Arlington and surrounding towns. To find out more or join our group, email us at  artlinksarlington1@gmail.com or visit us on Facebook.
Our events are on the 1st Wednesday of the month, alternating noon – 2pm or 7 – 9pm. We generally meet at the Arlington Center for the Arts (20 Academy St, 3rd floor), and begin with 30 minutes for networking followed by a presentation, discussion, and announcements.
