Preparing for Our Fourth Exhibit — "Where I Live"
Mark your calendars! This coming Friday evening, July 29, from 6-8 pm, we will be opening our next exhibit to the public. It's a juried show and you may expect to be treated to interesting, exciting, recent artwork by our members. We hope to see you there!


Three Exciting Events!
    In celebration of our 70th anniversary, Essex Art Association is pleased to announce the following events scheduled for the 2016 calendar year.
