The North Hills Art Center supports local artists in a variety of ways.

We provide a vibrant gallery to showcase artwork throughout the year. We also provide the opportunity for emerging artists and local arts groups to rent our gallery space and hold their own private shows.

Members of the NHAC enjoy lower fees when entering shows and taking classes, enjoy discounts at several local art supply and framing shops and are the first to know about upcoming events via our email newsletter.  Members also qualify for free entry into our Artisan Markets.
