Our latest News



The 2024 Art Auction Fundraiser Updates – February 10, 2024.  

We are looking for everyone to donate a piece of art for this event to help raise funds! We discussed auctioning art exclusively and perhaps raffling off household items and miscellaneous pieces that interest our guests.


2024 Art Exhibit – Galería Escute – May of 2024. 

The theme is “Puerto Rico Seasons” for this exhibit. We encourage you to participate. We will plan an opening show to mingle with artists and friends. 


We hope you have started working on your piece. 


Carroll’s workshop and many other workshops during the year could be great opportunities to create art for this exhibit. Submit your art for the exhibit here: Galería Escuté May 2024


EEAG Website: Please visit and share the link to your gallery page. That is your portfolio! 


Members, if you want to be part of our website, send your artist statement (or bio) and pictures of up to 10 most recent works of art to Alicia
