Welcome to the LGAA

We are a non-profit organization established in 1948 dedicated to the enrichment and support of the arts community.

Our mission is to promote creative expression in the pictorial and allied arts by fostering high standards, extending appreciation and encouraging cooperation and camaraderie among artists.

Membership is open to all artists and art supporters by application on the Membership page.

Meetings

General Meetings are held monthly on the second Saturday 1:00 - 3:00pm at the Los Gatos Adult Recreation Center: 208 E. Main St., Los Gatos.

LGAA members (or those considering membership) as well as guests are welcomed to attend to watch the demo and meet the members.
