The Wilmington Art Association is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for area visual artists to gain community recognition through shows and exhibitions. It offers a forum wherein artists, local craftsmen, and people interested in the visual arts can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and contribute to the community. It provides educational programs, demonstrations, and lectures, which will lead to better public understanding and appreciation of visual arts.
