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.
Two exhibits are on display now through June 9: the Spring Membership Show, an unthemed show in the Kauffman Gallery and a solo exhibit of recent work by Henrietta Holton-Thomas in the Steinmetz Gallery.
The LCAA's National Juried Exhibition 2016 will open on Sunday, June 19, with a reception from 1 to 4pm. The National Juried Exhibition will continue through Thursday, July 28.
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.
