Glastonbury Arts

Our members are the heart and soul of Glastonbury Arts.
No matter where you live, we invite you to join.


Looking for a fulfilling and creative way to serve your community and meet new friends? Join the Glastonbury Arts Board of Directors to volunteer your time and talents!

For nearly 60 years, our small non-profit art organization has been dedicated to enriching the cultural life of our local community. Through art programs, exhibitions and classroom instruction, lectures and demonstrations, art scholarships and mentoring, our mission brings together artists, art loving people of all ages, and our community to engage in and foster a sincere appreciation for art.

Our annual and ongoing “happenings” include: 

  • On the Green Fine Art and Craft Show
  • Got Art Free Artist Lectures and Demonstrations
  • Adult, Teen and Children’s Art Instruction
  • Artist Workshops (including Plein Air Painting)
  • President’s Appreciation Meeting
  • Social Media Outreach
  • Membership Drive
  • Building and Grounds
  • Gallery Events

Currently, our Board includes artists and non-artists alike and that’s the way we like it. We want voices around the table that can bring different backgrounds, skills, and experiences to bear as we strive to improve our operations and to make our programs relevant to the community at large. Our board meets remotely one evening per month and always remains respectful of member’s volunteer time commitment. We welcome the opportunity to share our experiences and to answer any questions you may have about joining our board by emailing us.
