The Lafayette Art Association serves the community by maintaining and supporting a professional art gallery located in the Oil Center at 1008 East St. Mary Blvd. We hang approximately 70 exhibits each year in the main gallery, as well as satellite locations around the parish including the Lafayette Parish Consolidated Government Building, the Lafayette Public Library, LCVC, Vermillionville, and several restaurants and offices spaces.
The LAA annually sponsors two University of Louisiana Lafayette Scholarships, the “Kids Are Artists Too” exhibition for youth from birth through 8th grade, and two competitions open to all artists region-wide.
We are an all-volunteer, member-driven organization, and we offer workshops in painting in all mediums, photography, jewelry making, hand-made books, print-making and many others.
All funds raised during the year support the LAA to continue to provide a place for artists to gather, learn and grow.
We sponsor several targeted Fund Raising Events during the year:
- "Spring Art Auction" - a silent auction of items donated by members
- "The 6X6" - Buy a Ticket, Take Home a Painting
We also welcome donations of any amount at any time. You can - stop by the gallery: 1008 E. St. Mary Blvd, Lafayette, - or mail us a check: PO Box 53065, Lafayette, LA 70505, - and soon you will be able to donate online!!
The Lafayette Art Association is supported by an External Agencies Funding Program grant, sponsored by the Lafayette Consolidated Government, and administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
