One of the oldest art clubs in the nation

The Frederick Art Club was founded in Frederick, Maryland, in August 1897. Initially a small league of women art students, it has evolved into a Frederick institution that now has more than 100 members. Our long-standing mission is to teach and practice art, enlighten members, and generate an appreciation of the value and beauty of art in the broader community. We also make time to network, nurture friendships, and simply enjoy each other's company.

Find out about our programs and activities, our public art project featuring a bronze likeness of iconic designer Claire McCardell, our scholarship fund to open educational opportunities for students of the visual arts. 

and (of course!) how to join us.
