Artists of the Year, Workshop Fun, New Classes and more!

On September 11 we celebrated our Artist of the Year 2019, Bill Gorajia, and our Artist of the year 2020, Janet Griffith. Both Bill and Janet are outstanding artists and have served CAA for many years. The pandemic kept us from doing our traditional honors. We had a tasty dinner in the community room at the Historic Civic Center and enjoyed several wonderful works of art that Bill and Janet brought in. Thank you to everyone who made this event happen, and congratulations once again to Bill and Janet! 🥳


The "Awesome Autumn" Art Show was hung, judged and winners pinned last week. Check out all the entries in the gallery now through mid-November. The online Winners Wall can be viewed here:
