Peninsula Arts Association mission is to encourage, stimulate, support, and promote creative expression by individuals, groups and our community.


Peninsula Arts Association began as an informal gathering of local artists. In 1996 the group filed incorporation papers as Peninsula Arts Association with the State of Washington as a nonprofit entity. Two art show were held in 1996, one in April with entries from 50 artists and one over Labor Day weekend with over 50 artists. In January 1997 PAA filed for federal 501(c)(3) status with the IRS - the filing was approved.

Membership Benefits

Members of PAA are eligible to participate in the Spring and Fall Art Shows and the November Studio Tour. These events bring awareness of work by local artists and the sales help support our art community.

Membership meetings often include informative programs such as: 

  • how to frame and mat your art; 
  • marketing your art; 
  • and how to prepare a professional art portfolio. 

Members share information on local and online resources for materials, printing and other art related items. And there is the camaraderie of fellow artists working together to learn and support each others goals.
