things art in the Ocean City community. Home of the non profit Art
League of Ocean City,  our newly built bayside facility features a
spacious two story gallery, a pottery studio, classrooms, art library

Exhibits kick off with an opening reception from 5-7PM on the first
Friday of each month.  The receptions, as with all of our activities,
are open to the public. In addition, we offer workshops for artists of
all ages and skill levels, a summer art camp program and community
events like our Plein Air Painting Competition and Sand Castle Home
Tour. Affordable community meeting space, with beautiful views of the
bay, is available for rent for your next gathering.

 

The Center for the Arts owes its success to many dedicated Art League
of Ocean City members and volunteers who give of their time and talents.
We welcome you to  join our team and get involved.  Whether you are an
artist or simply an art appreciator, visit The Ocean City Center for the
