New this year - we encourage photographers to join the KAA. Member photographers may submit their fine art photography to either the Small Works or the Portfolio show, run concurrently with our main gallery shows. In addition, there will be a dedicated photography show in the fall.

The 2016 KAA Show Calendar is available (revised as of 2/5/16). There are some exciting new opportunities planned for the year.

Two new shows have been added to the schedule: a Fall counterpart to our popular Spring Juried Show, and the "Show for Shows" - a show aimed at connecting our member artists with area galleries. Stay tuned for more information!
