To the artists and the communities of Marin County and beyond, the Marin Society of Artists is a dynamic nonprofit [501(c)3] art organization whose members have a diverse richness of talent, knowledge and experience. We offer an unparalleled environment to discover, develop and appreciate artistic expression.

Marin Society of Artists is the longest running, active art organization in Marin County and we are the intersection where artists and community gather. We believe discovering life's art is a personal journey and we nurture artists in their quest of creative expression empowering them with solutions they can own and expertise they can take forward.

We assume the responsibility to properly promote the understanding and enjoyment of art. We do this through earnest dialog, diverse exhibitions, classes, workshops and innovative education programs that are woven into the fabric of our thriving community.

The organization is run and supported by its volunteer members, our fundraising efforts and donations . If you would like to make a donation, please visit our Support page, or Join as a  Art Centre Member.

We offer art lovers a variety of 2D and 3D works in most mediums. Our Main Gallery showcases a new display of original art every month, most available for purchase.
