The Ocean County Artists' Guild is a non-profit organization working to promote the arts in
Ocean County drawing in artists and patrons from around the region. Our mission is to serve
the artists and community; to provide an outlet and training for artistic talent, to enhance the
quality of life for the residents and thereby attract newcomers, and to provide an attraction
to draw tourists to the community.

We provide exhibition space for members on a monthly basis and hold solo shows for selected artists who may be members or live outside the area. We offer classes for both adults and children, workshops, demonstrations, open studio time with live models and cultural programs.
We welcome active artists of every level. Click here for a membership application.

The Gallery Gift Shop showcases contemporary and traditional fine art and crafts for sale.
Members are encouraged to submit their work for display.

The Guild is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
