Artists Application

Anna Maria Island Art League

The Art League was founded in 1989 by a small group of artists and art lovers with a desire to bring art to the island community. In June 1993 the Art League opened the islandís first art center in Holmes Beach, Florida

The Art Center facility includes a large exhibit/classroom, membership gallery/conference room, photo lab, art library and picnic grounds where the League offers a broad range of classes, including a scholarship program for children and adults.

Annually the League sponsors two juried fine arts and fine crafts festivals that provide funds for the art center and its scholarship fund.

There are eight new exhibitions annually, featuring both local and regional artists. The public is invited to attend the opening receptions.
Art League Hours: Mondays - Wednesdays - Fridays 10:00 am to 2:00 pm - Saturdays by Appt.
This is a great opportunity to renew your membership, get information about upcoming events, and tour the monthly Gallery Exhibit. Volunteers are always appreciated!
Artists needed that want smiles.
This project will benefit the community and children.
Please see blow for details on how you can help.


Artist Volunteers Needed--To lead children aged 5-8 in creating illustrations for a storybook about sea turtles. This project is collaboration between the Bridge Street Merchants Association, AMI Community Center and Turtle Watch. Its purpose is to increase awareness among island residents of all ages, but especially with island visitors. The book is part of an ongoing project that is scheduled to launch on Bridge Street this fall as part of artsHOP.

The groups of kids (about 15 of them) are currently at a summer program at the AMI Community Center on the North end of the island. They recently completed a series of "Turtle Talks" with Suzi Fox, Director of AMI Turtle Watch. Then Lisbeth Oscuvilca, a Holmes Beach resident and educator, helped them develop a story. The finished product, a printed book, will be sold on Bridge Street with proceeds to benefit the AMICC and the Bridge Street Turtle project. Each participating artist will be acknowledged in the book.
