The Art Associates of Martin County (AAMC) has the largest membership of any art organization in Martin County. AAMC is dedicated to promoting creativity and the expression arts through several efforts. Chief among those efforts is our support of scholarships for deserving Martin County senior high school students so that they may continue their education and growth. We award scholardhips at each County High school as well as other deserving venues.
This dedication is realized through funding from our membership dues, gifts from the wills of a few former members, and from the organizations small but growing endowment again supported by members present and past.
In addition to scolarships AAMC presents awards to selected art students each month.
We also find venues so that our member artists have opportunities to show their work. AAMC hosts a Member show each year which is a juried exhibit with awards presented for outstanding work in several categories. And we seek to find supporters who give us the opportunity to display members' work in their offices and gathering spaces.
Each month during the season AAMC funds selected professional artists statewide and locally to present a demonstration of their skills and techniques so that we may continue our learning experiences.
