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 island’s 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.
