January 25 - February 29, 2020

The Area Artists Association (AAA) is an organization that recognizes and encourages active regional artists. It was established in 1979 in conjunction with the foundation of the Blank Center for the Arts, which later became Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA). The AAA held its first exhibition in 1980. This show celebrates the 40th anniversary of this committed group of artists and offers them the opportunity to share their best work in LCA’s Hyndman Gallery.
The artists in this group remain dedicated to exhibiting their works in individual and group exhibitions throughout the region. Their works include abstract painting, quilting, photography, handmade paper, collage, landscapes, still lifes and more. The Area Artists Association's purpose is "to increase the appreciation and recognition of local and regional member artists through exhibitions and promotion of their art." As this organization continues to grow, we look forward to another 40 years of artistic expression in our region.
