Who We Are 

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 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.
