Membership in DeCosmos Fine Arts Society is open to anyone interested in the arts, practicing artist or art lover. Membership is $25 a year from September to August and renewals are payable at the September meeting. New members can join any time; membership fees are not prorated.
Regular monthly meetings are held from September to May on the 3rd Thursday of the month. We are currently in search of a new meeting space to hold our meetings once the Covid-19 pandemic is behind us. We hope to resume meeting in the Fall of 2021, so watch this site for updates.
Meetings begin at 1:00 p.m. with a short business session, followed by refreshments and socializing. A presentation from an invited guest artist begins about 1:45 p.m. and lasts for about an hour. Guests are welcome for a $5 donation.
There are no scheduled meetings in June, July and August.
