ABOUT US

MISSION


The mission of the Brentwood Art Society is to encourage, support and develop art and cultural programs to benefit the City of Brentwood community. 



HISTORY


Shortly after the formation of the City of Brentwood Arts Commission, a group of individuals formed the Brentwood Art Society. The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to raise funds for art and cultural support through various events within Brentwood and through membership. The Art Society's purpose is to create art in the community, promote public support and participation for the arts in Brentwood through the encouragement of the private sector and local educational institutions.
By April 2001, the Brentwood Art Society was formed with Jan Melloni, Ron Beatty, Joe Trebino, Chris Robinson and Helen Myers. Some months later, articles of incorporation were submitted to the State of California, followed soon by elected officers and an accepted By-laws with BAS, 1st President Jan Melloni, Treasurer Joe Trebino, Secretary Ron Beatty. 
Membership in the Brentwood Art Society is now done through the various community organizations that it supports with funds from the "Brentwood Art, Wine and Jazz Festival". Please read below about these organizations and consider becoming a member of them.
