Artist of the Year 2022, Holiday Closure, Dues Payments for 2023

Artist of the Year and Election/Survey Results

On Tuesday, Dec. 13 we held our final meeting of 2022, which also doubles as our annual Holiday Party. We had a delicious baked potato bar with every sort of topping, a fun gift exchange and raffles, and a generally festive evening.

We also had many special announcements!

Let's start with Artist of the Year 2022: And the award goes to....

Lori Alarcon

Congratulations, Lori!

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. Additionally, they will be featured on the Artist of the Year page of our website:

Election Results

CAA also holds elections at the end of each year for officers. This year, the positions for 1st Vice President, Treasurer, and Elected Director at Large were up for election. Lori Alarcon was re-elected 1st VP; Tina Ryan was re-elected Treasurer; and Bill Gorajia was re-elected by the membership as their director at large. Thank you Lori, Tina, and Bill for your continued service and commitment to the Corona Art Association!

Survey Results

Along with the election, we survey our members each year to choose our art show themes for the upcoming year. Our 2023 art shows will be...

January: Places Traveled

March: Then and Now

May: Botanicals

July: Day at the Beach

September: Glorious Food and Sweets!

November: Childhood Favorites

T-Shirt Contest

And finally, the membership voted on which of 6 member-designed 60th anniversary T-Shirts would represent our diamond anniversary in 2023. That honor goes to...

Kim Mabon

T-Shirts will be available in a variety of styles and sizes in the new year.


New and returning members, please fill out an application online and pay your dues before January 1, 2023 to get the current annual pricing of $40 for individuals and $70 for couples.

After January 1, the dues will be going up to $50 for individuals and $80 for couples. The student rate of $25 will remain the same.


The Gallery and Gift Shop are getting a make-over for the next few weeks, so we'll be closed to the public and other member activities. We're looking forward to a "grand" re-opening mid-January.


Don't forget to get your Calendars!

The Corona Art Association will be celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2023!
