On August 21 the Goleta Valley Art Association hosted an all-day outdoor art show at La Cumbre Plaza in cooperation with the three galleries of the La Cumbre Center for Creative Arts (LCAAA). Several of the LCCCA artists also are members of GVAA. For the 15 years prior to 2020, the organization held its summer show at Stow House in Goleta. With no show in 2020 due to the pandemic, it gave the association pause to reconsider a new vision for the show.
As the community cautiously begins to see schools back in session, GVAA is also looking forward to the day when members can continue a long-established after-school program for Goleta Union School District students. The program, still on hiatus, features GVAA members who go into the schools and teach art projects so children have the opportunity to develop and share their creative talents with the guidance of our members.
