Exhibits change monthly and two Art Center sponsored outdoor festivals bring artists from all over the United States to the Eastern Shore.
Four studios provide various classes and workshops of all mediums for students of all ages. The outreach program serves to bring new learning and communication to children and adults with disabilities and chronic illnesses through the arts.
