Founded in 1917, by some of America’s greatest artists including Charles Bittenger, John Singer Sargent, and Frank Benson, the Duxbury Art Association (DAA) offers year round art classes, workshops and exhibitions designed for “the artist in everyone.” A non-profit, member-supported association, the DAA is dedicated to providing South Shore residents access to quality art education, exhibits and special events. From the Annual Winter Juried Show, Midsummer Art Show and Craft Showcase and Sale, to various themed exhibitions in the Bengtz and Cutler Galleries throughout the year, the DAA celebrates the visual arts in all its forms.
The Duxbury Art Association is located at the Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 St. George Street, Duxbury. The Ellison Center is the artistic heart of Duxbury and home to both the DAA and South Shore Conservatory. For detailed directions click here.
