The club is fortunate to be headquartered in the historic James Monroe House, and members also share a commitment to the preservation of our historic house.

Membership privileges include the opportunity to meet other artists and patrons of the arts at formal and informal lunches, dinners, and literary or musical events.  Privileges also include use of Monroe House for personal or business entertaining and use of two comfortable guest rooms. Member artists also have the opportunity to exhibit their work.

Among the wide range of activities and benefits available to club members are concerts, club dinners with performances, book and author events, luncheons, special events, holiday parties and monthly art exhibits.  In addition members participate in the club’s National Award for Arts Writing competition, play competition, and other events sponsored by the club.
