About the LGAA

Welcome! We are a non-profit organization established in 1948 dedicated to the enrichment and support of the arts community. We feature monthly meetings with demos by well-known artists, group shows, festivals, peer art exhibits, contests, workshops, a plein-air group that goes on weekly outings, and a newsletter.


Due to the coronavirus, LGAA meetings are held online the Second Sunday of every month at 4:00pm. Normally they are held monthly on the Second Sunday, 1:00 - 3:00pm at 20 Cherry Blossom Lane at Congregation Shir Hadash in Los Gatos. It's a beautiful facility with ample parking and a wonderful meeting room. The meetings are free and open to the general public.

Letter from the President, Jane Loomis

Jane Loomis The local wildfires are extinguished, and luckily we have clean air once again. However, Covid-19 is on the rise so we cannot have real-life meetings or shows for the remainder of the year. We are back to Plan B with attending online meetings, contributing to and viewing online galleries, and painting outdoors with artists wearing masks and social distancing.
