Livermore Art Association History

Twenty-three artists gathered to organize the Livermore Art Association (LAA) in April of 1957. Objectives of the group, which are embraced today, were to offer educational programs and demonstrations of arts and crafts for members and the general public and also to provide opportunities for members to show and to sell art works.

In 1974 the LAA established its co-op gallery in the historic Carnegie Building. This facility serves as an art information center for the community as well as a gallery. Additionally, the art video library developed by the organization for its members is housed at the gallery, as are books, magazines, and other educational and informational materials.

As the group grew to over two hundred members, it began a series of art shows and exhibits, which continue to attract gifted and talented artists to display their craft. Large numbers of visitors enjoy the LAA's annual Spring Show, Art in the Vineyard at Wente Estate Vineyard, Art Under the Oaks at Alden Lane Nursery, and a theme show, Vineyard Images, during the vineyards' Harvest Trails event.
