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.
Opening with a reception on February 23 and continuing to March 20 are two exhibits: the Garden Show in the Kauffman Gallery and an Invitational Exhibit of the works of three artists: Michael Hower, Concetta Mattioni, & Denis A. Yanashot in the Steinmetz Gallery.
On exhibition from February through April at the satellite gallery, LCAA Downtown, are artworks by members of the LCAA's Professional Artist Group.
The LCAA has membership exhibits throughout the year, invitational exhibits, and the National Juried Exhibition. The postmark deadline for entries to the National Juried Exhibition is April 5.

Art classes are offered for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels of skill. The Congregation 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.
