We're Open!

The Island Art Association gallery is open and continues to follow all guidelines from Public Health officials.

Stop in to view the extensive range of art created by our 45 member artists;  All  work is available for purchase.

It is with great sadness that we share the news that friend and fellow artist, Joe Winston, passed away on December 15, 2020. He had been a member of the Island Art Association for over 25 years who created beautiful pottery and provided leadership and guidance to the organization. His presence will truly be missed. Please remember his family at this difficult time.



The Island Art Association is a non-profit volunteer organization whose mission is exclusively philanthropic and educational. Its purpose is to develop and sustain an interest, appreciation, and enjoyment in and of the arts of Nassau County, Florida.  Our gallery houses the works of more than 45 local artists and our Education Center is utilized for classes, workshops and scheduled events.

2020 was a very difficult year for everyone.  Arts organizations are no exception.  Many of our activities and programs were cancelled because of concern for the health and safety of our membership and the public.  The Island Art Association would like to recognize The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida for their grant support during 2020 through their Respond Adapt Recover Fund.  Thank you very much - we are truly all in this together.
