.....Associated Artists of the Inland Empire (AAIE) was established in 1964 and held the first Membership art show in the spring of that year. In the years since its beginning, the purpose of AAIE has been to promote the creative talent of its members, to provide an exchange of ideas between area artists, and to generate public interest in fine arts.
......AAIE has grown from a few dedicated members to a current enrollment of about 250 artists. New members are accepted on an ongoing basis. Membership is open to artists of all levels of accomplishment, and to those working in any media. The only requirement for membership is a genuine interest in creating or sharing the enjoyment of artwork.
......Monthly meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at the Goldy S. Lewis Community Center, 11200 Baseline Road; Rancho Cucamonga, California. Well-known, talented artists are invited to demonstrate in a variety of media at each monthly meeting. Demonstrations are open to the public. Click here for Directions to the Center.
......Members are advised by a monthly Newsletter of art-related events from our area and throughout Southern California. An Annual Juried Art Show allows members to compete with one another and with artists from other areas.
......The meetings and yearly show keep members abreast of a variety of techniques and of what is happening in the art community. At the same time, AAIE hopes to make the community more familiar with art and local artists. Click here to contact us by Email for more information.
