Founded in 1936, the Lancaster County Art Association 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 for the community to see the work of local artists and artists from outside of Lancaster County in special exhibits.
Opening on Sunday, June 10, is the LCAA Open Door Exhibition, an exhibit of work by both members and non-members in both the Kauffman and the Steinmetz Galleries. The Open Door Exhibition replaces our National Juried Exhibition this year. A number of our previous juried show artists from all across the United States will be participating. Judge for the exhibit is award winning artist George Shortess who has shown his work internationally in Europe, Japan and Canada, as well as nationally in the United States.
