OAA Membership Benefits
Since 1974 the Olney Art Association has grown to include over 70 members.
OAA holds membership meetings on the third Wednesday evening of January, March, May, July, September and November.
Our meeting location is s the Olney Community Library at 3500 Olney Laytonsville Rd, Olney, MD 20832.
The membership meetings are informative and include art demonstrations by well-known artists and other presentations aimed at giving the members a wide spectrum of new ideas and motivation for their own work. Among the members of OAA are art teachers, some of whom instruct and hold workshops within Montgomery County. These visual fine artists have a wide range of interests including oil painting, watercolor, acrylics, pastels, printmaking, sculpture, pottery, photography and digital art.
Members receive a bi-monthly newsletter which is a valuable resource of information about area art shows, workshops, general art news, member activities and monthly meeting updates.
OAA sponsors an annual juried show at various venues and a semi-annual show at Sandy Spring Museum.
Members may show one image in the Member Gallery on our website and may also show images of works exhibited in our shows on our website.
OAA cooperates with other art, business and government organizations to provide members opportunities to exhibit at local offices, businesses and public spaces.
