About The York Art Association
The York Art Association, located in York, PA, began in 1905 when three visual artists and several businessmen came together to exchange views and interests. Over a hundred years later, YAA has evolved into a vital organization with over 450 members.
The YAA holds ten diverse juried and non-juried exhibits each year. These exhibits include traditional and non-representational art in various mediums. We also host a number of workshops and lectures throughout the year, as well as providing meeting space for the monthly meetings of other non-profit organizations.
The YAA is a member of the Cultural Alliance of York County. We cooperate in undertakings with other members of the Cultural Alliance in appropriate and mutually beneficial activities.
