A Brief History...
In 1948, a small group of Manhasset artists were invited to meet at the home of Helen Jennings, who had a dream of organizing a workshop where artists could work together to develop their talents, exchange ideas, and foster a greater appreciation and advancement of the arts in the community. In 1949, a constitution was adopted, and Helen Jennings was elected president. The association held meetings at many different sites such as the old firehouse on Bayview Avenue, Patricia Murphy's restaurant, Manhasset Hall, the old Onderdonk House, the Community Reformed Church, Haven Art Studio, Port Washington Community Chest Building, the Polish American Museum & now the Lutheran Church
of our Saviour, Manhasset.
