Spring Membership Show Sponsor:
Terry Banzett Memorial Fund

Terry Banzett and her husband Howard moved to Lancaster in 1954. She joined the LCAA and exhibited her art and won awards in numerous exhibits during the 1950’s and 1960’s. In 1968 they moved to California but remembered the LCAA fondly. In 2012 the Terry Banzett Memorial Fund was established by her family and friends. It is used to sponsor one LCAA exhibit each year and our art class for adults with cognitive or physical disabilities.
