Receptions are held on the first date of the exhibition except for the Spring Membership Show and the John Sauers Exhibit. The reception for those shows was canceled due to Governor Wolf’s ordered closing of all non-life sustaining businesses in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

In the Kauffman Gallery

Spring Membership Show
Award Winners

Due to the need for social distancing and by order of Governor Wolf for all non-life sustaining businesses to close for an indefinite amount of time, the LCAA is currently closed. The Spring Membership Show and the John Sauers Exhibit can't be viewed in person until the order is lifted.
Consequently, we are putting all of the images of the artwork online in albums on our Facebook Page so that you may view the artwork currently hanging in the show. To see the online album of all of the artworks in the Spring Membership Show, click here.
Slide shows of this exhibit and the John Sauers exhibit are on the LCAA’s Facebook Page.
The exhibits will remain up until May 14 and will be accessible to the public for viewing until that time if the order is lifted and businesses can open again.

'Building Up Sky', oil by John Sauers

Award winning artist, John Sauers, will be exhibiting a wide range of works in this show. As a young man John won a four year scholarship to the Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore. In 1956 he began a 35 year career as a graphic designer with Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. His work as a fine art painter brought him recognition in many regional and national competitions.

Retiring in 1990, he served as residence artist at the Arts Depot and later the William King Museum of Art, both in Abington, VA. In 2005 John and his wife moved back to Darlington, Maryland. He has always felt a connectio to Lancaster County with his paternal grandparents being from this area. He is graciously donating 50% of any sales in this exhibit to the LCAA.

The Artathon originally scheduled for May 1, 2 and 3 has been canceled for those dates. The Artathon will be rescheduled (and undoubtedly renamed) for dates that are yet to be determined in the Fall. The original description of this event is as follows:

You have heard of dance or running marathons but we have them beat with our May Day Artathon! For three days, artists will be drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. and competing for a number of exciting awards and prizes.

Special events, door prizes and more will be happening throughout the weekend. The public is invited to attend and a ticket is good for the entire weekend.

Artists, join us for this three day event - paint, draw, sculpt, throw pots, create in any medium! You can win prizes and cash awards, sell your work and interact and expose your work to the art loving public. There will be a $500 grand prize as well as many other cash and merchandise awards!

Don’t wait to reserve your space. We have a limited number of spaces available.

Participate or come and watch artists create! See how long they can paint, draw, etc., who creates the most pieces, who sells the most.

Proceeds benefit the LCAAʼs many programs and exhibits.

Artist Space: $40 member $45 non-member. A limited number of easels or tables available for $5 each.
Admission: $15 per person, children under 12 -free. The admission price is for the entire weekend.
