The Chesapeake Bay Art Association was founded in Ocean View on August 8, 1961, when fifteen local artists were invited to a meeting to discuss forming an Art Guild for the area. Our mission is to “bring together in close cooperation local artists who are interested in furthering their own studies in art and art appreciation; to promote exhibit opportunities at designated times; have instructional speakers at our meeting and hold workshops that benefit all our members and expand their knowledge. Two regularly scheduled shows are held annually – the Spring Members Show and the Outdoor Show in October. Other shows are held as opportunities present themselves. We meet the third Tuesday of each month, 6:45pm at the Pretlow Library, Ocean View in Norfolk.
