Artist of the Year

CAA Artists earn points from entering and placing in our bimonthly art shows. At the end of the year, the CAA artist who has earned the most points is awarded "Artist of the Year". We celebrate their accomplishment with a special reception, their name added to our perpetual plaque, and a solo art show.

Lori Alarcon


Artist of the Year

Lori’s interest in art began as soon as she “could hold a pencil” and she experimented with every medium. In high school, she served as an illustrator for the school newspaper and learned oil painting in art class. At Cal State Long Beach, she earned a degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design. Lori goes through phases working in her favorite mediums and techniques, including oils, watercolors, acrylic, ink, airbrush, pastels, digital art and glass. She hopes her art brings beauty and positivity into the world and inspires others to create art as well.
