    Associated Artists' History   

     Associated Artists was established in 1964 and held their first membership art show in the spring of 1964.  Non-profit status was attained in 1983.  In the years since its beginning, the purpose of Associated Artists has been to promote the creative talent of its members, to provide an exchange of ideas between area artists, and to generate public interest in fine arts.

     Associated Artists has grown from a few dedicated members to a current enrollment of between 175 and 200.  New members are accepted on an ongoing basis.  Membership is open to artists of all levels of accomplishment, and to those working in any media.  The only requirement for membership is a genuine interest in creating or sharing the enjoyment of artwork.

     Monthly meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at the Magnolia Park Recreation Center at 15th Street and San Antonio Avenue in Upland,  California.  Well-known, talented artists are invited to demonstrate in a variety of media at each monthly meeting.  Demonstrations are open to the public.

     Members are advised by a monthly newsletter of art-related events from our area and throughout Southern California.  An annual Juried art show allows members to compete with one another and with artists from other areas.

     The meetings and yearly show keep members abreast of new techniques and of what is happening in the art community.  At the same time, Associated Artists hopes to make the community more familiar with art and local artists.


ASSOCIATED ARTISTS of the INLAND EMPIRE meetings are the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30 A.M.     The Magnolia Center; 651 W. 15th Street; Upland, CA.
