Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts is excited to present a new art exhibition featuring the Artists in the Chesapeake Bay Art Association.

Chesapeake Bay Art Association (CBAA) Spring Members Art Show features 36 CBBA Artists, and 9 High School Students, and 98 works of art. At CBAA’s Annual Spring Members’ Show, they award at least one scholarship (usually many more) to deserving high school seniors who will be continuing their art education in the fall.

CBAA was founded in Ocean View, Norfolk, VA on August 8, 1961. The CBAA is a Hampton Roads artist’s group that gets together and makes art, talks about art, looks at art, and raises money for young artists to go to art school. CBAA puts on the best outdoor art show in Hampton Roads, the Ocean View Art Show in October. Our meetings are held at the Mary Pretlow Library in Ocean View every third Tuesday at 6:45 and everyone is welcome to visit and apply for membership.
