Who We Are

The Arkansas League of Artists is an eclectic and diverse organization formed to promote the visual fine arts in Arkansas, open to all ages and across multiple disciplines. The League consists of visual artists and art enthusiasts from all over the state, who gather to learn through the demonstrations of techniques, the exploration of materials and mediums, and from the sharing of collective experiences and knowlege.

 

What We Do

As a non-profit organization the league promotes artistic education and the importance of the artistic community in Arkansas. We provide artists with opportunities for exposure through organized exhibitions and competitions, various workshops, scholarship awards for High School Students entering a College or University, and funds for students to be used for art instruction and classes at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts Windgate Art School.  

Our Meetings/Schedule

ALA meets the last Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm, with the exception of November and December, but always check our Home Page for the most up-to-date schedule.  Our November member meeting is typically our Christmas party, and the date depends on the Thanksgiving holiday and a few other variables. Check the site to confirm the  ALA Christmas party date.  

Meeting are held at the North Little Rock Community Center at the intersection of Pershing and Willow Street, just across from the Patrick Hays Senior Center in North Little Rock.

Each monthly meeting includes a demonstration by a guest lecturer, normally an artist, instructor, gallery owner, or someone working in either the artist community benefiting artists. We also  socialize and share information of coming artistic opportunities suck as upcoming events, exhibitions, shows, competitions, art supplies sales, etc.

We also hold a monthly competition, voted on by the active members in attendance at the meeting, where the top 5 place winners get the opportunity to display their artwork at an area Gallery or Bank the following month.
