The Cavallaro and Cleary Visual Art Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in support of the visual arts. The primary goal is to provide scholarships to talented high school seniors from the Lower Eastern Shore of Delaware, Maryland & Virginia to continue their studies in the visual arts at a school of their choice.  CCART also provides a venue for local artists and art students to sell their work at fundraising sales & events.

CCART truly appreciates everyone who helped us through the pandemic, and after some delays, finally helped us to be able to celebrate our 20th Year Milestone. It was truly a difficult, historic and trying time for the entire world, and we could not have gotten through it without all of our incredible supporters.

Through it all, we continued to rally applicants for
scholarships, kept our 4-year legacy campaign alive,
appealed to our loyal supporters with upbeat benefits to giving
(see Father's Day tribute below), held our 20th Anniversary Celebration and produced our
