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 Sunday, April 10, are two exhibits: the Garden Show, an annual themed membership show in the Kauffman Gallery featuring artwork with flowers, plants or anything that you'd find in a garden and, in the Steinmetz Gallery, a solo exhibit of the paintings of Elsie Beiler..
The LCAA has membership exhibits throughout the year, invitational exhibits, and the National Juried Exhibition in June and July.
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.
