  • A Century of Inspiration

    July 30 – Sept. 16, 2021

    A Century of Inspiration is an exhibit dedicated to celebrating the 100th anniversary of our beloved gallery. We are asking artists to look back at the work of the original art colony for inspiration. Bucolic landscapes with cows or sheep, woodland interiors, gardens beside a cottage, mountain laurels in bloom, bridges, porch scenes, moonlit nocturnes, portraits and so much more would be appropriate subject matter for this show. LAA is not looking for copies of the originals or asking artists to work in a style that is not their own, but to be inspired by the subject matter, color, and spirit of the founding members of LAA.

    All participants will be eligible for the following prizes, 1st $500, 2nd $250 and 3rd $125. 

    Open to all LAA member artists. Please download the prospectus for more details.
