The Elko County Art Club (ECAC) supports and nurtures local artists by providing opportunities for socializing with other artists, pursuing artistic growth, exhibiting and selling their art, and developing the appreciation of art in the Elko community. The ECAC Gallery displays and sells original artwork and crafts created by its member artists. Through the gallery’s Featured Guest series, Nevada artists are invited to conduct workshops and share their process and skills with the Elko community. Once a year the club organizes Art in the Park, the area’s largest arts related event, featuring artists and craftsman from Nevada, California, Idaho, Utah, Montana, and Arizona.
The Elko Art Club accepts new membership applications and fees from local visual artists through the organization’s website year round. Member benefits are outlined online and include several exhibition opportunities throughout the year. Regional visual artists may go online to apply for exhibition space at the annual Art in the Park event.
