We are committed to developing and sponsoring events, programs, independently as well as working collaboratively with various community and civic organizations, local merchants and educational institutions to encourage active engagement in all disciplines of the arts. The Art Society's annual fundraiser, Brentwood Art, Wine & Jazz Benefit Festival, is a keystone event and serves to provide awareness of our mission and showcase the talents of many local artists, art educators and artful programs available within our community. The funds raised during this festival allow Brentwood Art Society to provide financial assistance for many programs including our local graduating seniors who will move forward in their arts education.Other affiliates that benefit from our efforts; Art Guild of the Delta, Brentwood Writes, Friends of the Library CityRead, Brentwood Teen Theater, Brentwood Unified School District Art Docent program which includes their annual shows at Brentwood’s Community Center Public Art Walls and a winners show at Delta Gallery.
