Who We Are?

The Westchase Artists Society is a group of Tampa artists interested in adding vibrancy and art to the already interesting Westchase scene and Tampa Bay area. Our goal is to grow the art community in the Westchase Area as well as the Tampa Bay area by exhibiting art, educating artists, and bringing together visual artists around the area. Join us for an evening of fun introductions and discussion of future artistic activities, i.e. art shows, excursions, workshops, outdoor painting and other art-related events. DON'T be shy. Come and meet other Tampa artists. Bring yourself and a piece of your work to share, and let's see what we can "create" together! 


Our Story
