Since 1922, North Shore Arts Association has served our community and beyond, by fulfilling it's mission of promoting the advancement and preservation of the fine arts. This is acheived through exhibitions that encourage the viewing and aquisition of the fine arts, and presenting educational and charitable programs for the benefit and enjoyment of all. We rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.  Without this assistance we would not be able to carry out our mission.

A tremendous amount of planning, passion and commitment went into creating a remarkable 2018 season. We thank all of you for your active involvement that was so vital to this success!


Our Annual Giving Campaign plays a major role in ensuring our continued success. Membership dues and marina income significantly fall short of covering our expenses. We count on your gift to help us:


            • culturally enrich the public through exhibitions, lectures, and special invitational events

            • exhibit, preserve and expand our permanent collection

            • educate and encourage aspiring artists

            • maintain and improve our historic galleries

            • create opportunities for artists and art lovers to meet and interact

            • sustain a welcoming and collaborative relationship with our community partners


We are excited as we look toward NSAA’s future. We envision further improving the building, and are currently researching cost to:


            • restore the front wall and east wall

            • improve gallery lighting and temperature control in the upper gallery

            • make more productive use of the lower level by expanding studio and gallery space

            • work with our neighbors to repair Pirate’s Lane



We need your help and hope you will consider donating to make this vision a reality!

There are other ways to support NSAA as well. Plan a business or social event in our galleries, include

a gift to NSAA as part of your estate planning and introduce NSAA to your family and friends!

Know that your gift, no matter how large or small, impacts our future success. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you in the gallery often!
