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 To the Covid pandemic add the California fires, hazardous smoky air, evacuations, and evacuees, and this describes our month of August. Some of our members and their family have been harshly impacted by the evacuations; but regardless, we do our best to stay positive. The good thing that remains is that most of us can create our art indoors. However, the more adventurous Plein Air group continues to meet Monday mornings if the air quality allows.
