A little background on the South Shore Artists Group
The South Shore Artists Group was founded in 1946 by Thea Wilbur Olsen making it one of the oldest artist associations on Staten Island. The first meeting was held at the old Richmond Memorial Hospital. The original gathering of artists from all over Staten Island was to raise money for the hospital. Their paintings were exhibited in the hospital lobby. Soon the members were meeting every Tuesday for sketching field trips, museum visits, and other activities related to developing skills and appreciation of fine art. The group's association with the hospital lasted many years. Eventually the group's meeting place moved to The Staten Island Historical Museum in Richmond Town then onto the Masonic Temple in Great kills and currently every Tuesday at St. Albans Episcopal Church Eltingville. The South Shore Artists Group also sponsors the annual, juried open air art show known as the Conference House Art show.
