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:

  • Hosting the Edwardsville Art Fair, attracting more than 100 artists from 9 states.
  • Offering free art classes for children every Saturday.
  • Bringing the work of professional artists to our community through 10 exhibits each year.
  • Exhibiting works of art from more than 500 students – kindergarten through university – in the Dennis DeToye Student Gallery.  Students love to see their work displayed in a professional manner.  Smiles are everywhere as they proudly show their work to families and friends.
  • Offering weekly art classes and painting parties for adults.
  • Supporting art therapy research which provides an emotional and creative outlet for both patients and care givers.
  • Providing unique, hand-made gifts year round in our gallery shop.

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.
