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, member group shows, monthly peer art exhibits, contests, field trips, workshops, a plein-air group that goes on weekly outings, and a newsletter.

Meetings

LGAA General Meetings 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.
