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 with a reception on November 22 are two exhibits. In the Kauffman Gallery will be "Holiday Fruitcake", a food themed membership exhibit. In the Steinmetz Gallery will be the Invitational Exhibit which features two artists who had work shown in our National Juried Exhibition.
Adrienne Davis of Highland, Maryland will be exhibiting a variety of her landscapes and still lifes in watercolor and acrylic. Photographer Cheryl Tracy will be featuring images of the city of Philadelphiia. She resides in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.
Meet the artists at our reception on Sunday, November 22 from 1 to 4pm. Both exhibits run through December 20.
The LCAA has membership exhibits throughout the year, invitational exhibits, and the National Juried Exhibition in June and July.
Heating and Cooling System Fund
A crowdfunder has been set up on GoFundMe by LCAA member Marsha Stiles to raise funds so that the LCAA can replace its heating and cooling systems with a new system that works!
The HVAC system supplies heat in 3 zones for better efficiency but replacement will cost more due to requiring 3 separate units. It's not enjoyable for our students or office staff struggling to stay warm. This is the first major capital campaign needed for the LCAA since the building was erected in 1997.
If you love the arts and the concept of nurturing young, old and in-between artists, please support our organization with a donation today! Click here to visit the Healing and Cooling System Fund Page for the LCAA on GoFundMe.
Art classes are offered for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels of skill. The Creators 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.
