Join the Edwardsville Arts Center
The Edwardsville Arts Center (EAC) is made up of members and volunteers like you, who have come together with diverse interests and backgrounds to enjoy the richness and purpose art brings to our lives and the community. “Art-making” preserves our individuality and cultural heritage by giving us the ability to express ourselves beyond the capacity of words.
EAC benefits our community by bringing:
- Art classes for children, teens and adults: Through the hard work and commitment of our members and volunteers, EAC has grown steadily. This growth momentum needs your help, as a member, to continue offering even more educational opportunities in the future.
- Over a dozen unique art exhibits this year: Our community benefits from local and national artists as well as students who exhibit and sell their art for our pleasure and enrichment. EAC has held exhibits at the new facility, on the campus of the Edwardsville High School, the Glen Carbon Library, and formerly at Sacred Grounds café in Edwardsville. These exhibits offer our community the opportunity to view and purchase wonderful works of art.
- Gallery Shop: EAC has newly opened a “gallery shop” that allows artisans the opportunity to display and sell affordable artwork on a continual basis.
- EAC Partnerships: EAC is excited to be developing partnerships with other organizations including the SIUE Art Museum, COCA of St. Louis, our local school districts and the YMCA to bring art education to the community.
As a member of EAC, you will have the satisfaction of knowing your financial support goes to inspiring youths and lighting the creative spirit of adults. Your membership will give the community and students an opportunity to experience a professional art gallery, competitions, and classes while maintaining a safe, enjoyable learning environment for all who participate.
