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.
The Spring Membership Show, an unthemed exhibit of artwork in a variety of media, opens with a reception on Sunday, May 3, in the Kauffman Gallery and continues through May 28.
Also opening on May 3 is William Chambers' exhibit, The Obsessive Dollhouse, in the Steinmetz Gallery.
The LCAA has membership exhibits throughout the year, invitational exhibits, and the National Juried Exhibition.
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.
