Came upon this place by accident. Took a look around. Some people were working on their own art pieces. The ones displayed were quite impressive. Wish I lived here or was staying longer. This place would interest me.

After my visit to the public library nearby to use their computer, I enjoy visiting the art center and seeing so many interesting, beautiful pictures, paintings, etc. that helps me appreciate the talent displayed there.

Works of primarily "beach" themed art by local artists...many quite good! One local artist, Linda Newton, for instance, is a special find as she has worked with palm parts and other natural materials to create a seabird. Very inspiring.

If you are looking for local art or want to take lessons, the Beach Art Center will meet your needs. Local artists display their works. Teachers conduct regularly scheduled lessons at a nominal fee. Art shows are held and fun to attend.
