The McLean Art Society, Inc. was organized in 1955 by a group of artists in the McLean area for the purpose of bringing together local artists to share their interests, enrich their experiences in art, and make creative contributions to their community. The society has grown to include a variety of media: watercolor, oils, drawing, pottery, printing, photography and sculpting.
Each month, the McLean Art Society showcases a member from the society and declares them "Artist of the Month". The artist of the month has their artwork on the home page of the website and of the gallery page. This months artist of the month is Jane McElvany Coonce.
