Founded in 1936, the Lancaster County Art Association celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2011.
The LCAA is the County's oldest arts organization offering support for the visual arts through exhibition opportunities for artists as well as art classes, workshops, special programs, and opportunities to see the work of local artists and artists from outside of Lancaster County in special exhibits.
Opening Sunday, November 24, are two exhibits: a membership exhibit, White as Snow, in the Kauffman Gallery and a solo exhibit of the paintings of John Walls in the Steinmetz Gallery.
Currently on exhibit through November and December at the satellite gallery, LCAA Downtown, is a Holiday Show of art by members of the LCAA's Professional Artists Group.
The LCAA has membership exhibits throughout the year, an invitational exhibit, and the National Juried Exhibition.
Art classes are offered for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels of skill. The Congregation of Art, a class for adults with cognitive and physical disabilities, is offered on the second Tuesdays of the month. For children there is an Art Club that meets one afternoon per week during most of the school year and Art Camps and classes that are held in the summer.
