The theme of the Englewood Art Center 2014 – 2015 season is Art Local.  As a community with a distinctively unique character—from the breathtaking gulf coast environment to its commitment to independent & small businesses and supporting the arts; EAC wants to ensure that residents and visitors alike participate in our local community, creatively.  Through classes, exhibitions, community programming and events, EAC wants artists, art enthusiasts and anyone else who wants to support the creative community in Englewood to join us this season. ____________________________________________________________________
