Their 2021 Member Show exhibition is being held now through February. The show features local artists in four categories: painting, photography, sculpture, and works on paper.

In first place for Photography, Tom Kretsch won for his work titled Many Moos, New Zealand. Kretsch is mostly self-taught but inspired by the works of the Wyeth family of painters. He uses the elements of light, texture, form, and color to capture peaceful moments and surroundings.
Joe Gitterman took first place in Sculpture for his work titled Orange. Gitterman, who has sculpted for over 50 years has work included in private and corporate collections. He is inspired by movement such as ballet and modern dance.
Lastly, in Works on Paper, Peter Seltzer took the winning spot for his work titled Threads 4. Seltzer has had paintings in oil and pastel exhibited at numerous public venues and has been featured in many articles for his work and technique.
