Eastern Shore Art Center

The Eastern Shore Art Center is located at 401 Oak St., Fairhope.

The Eastern Shore Art Association was founded in 1954 by a group of local artists and art patrons. Construction was begun that same year on a one room gallery on the site of the former Pinewood Pottery that had operated in Fairhope for over twenty years making functional ceramics from local clay.

The Art Center houses 6 exhibit galleries and 5 teaching studios. ESAC now includes among its activities monthly exhibits, quarterly classes for adults and children, 2 outdoor shows annually, monthly Art Walks and extensive programs for both public art and arts education in local schools.

Since 1943 the ESAC has held its Outdoor Art Show every March.
