Established in August 2006, the Westchase Artists Society is comprised of visual artists interested in furthering the art community in the Westchase area and all of Tampa Bay. Their goal is to nurture both the artist and art lover by hosting art exhibits, providing art education, promoting art activities, and creating an opportunity for area artists to come together and share with each other and the community. When asked to reflect on the past ten years, Vanessa Montenegro, Co- Founder of the Westchase Artists Society added, “While members have come and gone over the last ten years, the purpose and the artistic spirit of the group have been kept viable thanks to the group of members who volunteered their time and kept the original vision of the group alive. 
Additional information on each member and images of their artwork can be found on the web at and on Facebook (Westchase Artists Society). The Upper Tampa Bay Regional Library is located at 11211 Countryway Boulevard in Tampa, just ½ mile north of the intersection of Countryway and W. Linebaugh Avenue.
