Who We Are

The Working Artists Forum started meeting in Easton, Maryland in 1979. In 1981 the group became a legal affiliation to the Academy of the Arts. This affiliation was terminated in 1991 and The Working Artists Forum became a not for profit corporation May 20, 1991. 



Our Objectives

Since 1979, WAF has been a juried organization of working professional artists from diverse professions and geographic locations, who meet monthly at the Academy Art Museum for demonstrations, group critiques and lively discussion.  Membership has grown from 13 original charter members to 91 members today. WAF members actively show their work on the Eastern Shore, separately and together, and have pieces in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and abroad. Although members have received numerous awards and prizes in countless competitions and shows, a strong interest remains in pro bono work for the community, and donations are made each year to the art classes in our area schools.
