Galveston Art League is a 108-year-old nonprofit organization that was founded with the
mission of promoting art education and visual arts in the Galveston County region and
beyond. The Art League accomplishes this through its workshops (which include many
geared to adults); member shows and juried competitions, both of which provide artists
with excellent exposure (the gallery hangs a new exhibit each month); and travel
Art League membership, with fees that are tax-deductible, is enticing to anyone who
appreciates art. Artists and non-artists who join the league enjoy members-only social
gatherings and educational opportunities. To learn more about Galveston Art League,
