AAEH strives to work with the community in a variety of ways. In addition to artist talks and presentations, exhibitions and plein air painting opportunities for artists, we also partner with local charities. Often, our artists are happy to contribute a portion of their sales to some of these worthy organizations.

Our Opening Night Receptions always present a wonderful opportunity to chat with the artists and make new friends or meet neighbors in a relaxed festive atmosphere. For our “Celebration” Exhibit we are thrilled to have music by local fan favorite band, Job Potter and Friends. Light bites and refreshments will be served.
