The Concord Art Association, located in historic Concord, Massachusetts,
has been a home to the visual arts since 1917 when it was founded by
American impressionist painter, Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts.
We are a non-profit, membership-based organization, comprised of artists, educators and supporters of the arts. Our membership is inclusive, providing avenues of exposure and training to students and professionals alike. Our members work in a variety of styles and media including painting, printmaking, photography, fiber and sculpture.
Our mission has always been to promote and support contemporary art and artists through exhibitions and educational programming. The work of artists such as Daniel Chester French, Mary Ogden Abbott and Claude Monet have graced our walls. We continue this tradition of excellence by encouraging and providing avenues for our members, whatever level they have achieved, to present their work.
We mount between 18–25 exhibitions per year. In addition to our annual Members Juried I and II, Frances N. Roddy Competition and Holiday Originals shows, we also present world-class, independently-curated exhibitions such as Thoreau Revisited, New England Impressions: The Unique Print, and The American Artist in Ireland.
Non-members are always welcomed and encouraged to partake in and enjoy our exhibits and educational programming including demos, classes, lectures, trips and tours.
Our beautiful galleries and landscaped garden are available for rentals for both
professional and personal occasions throughout the year.
In the summer of 2009 we underwent a renovation to our circa 1750 John Ball House, providing us with rejuvenated and expanded space including an additional classroom, a dedicated members gallery, a lift, and a spacious catering kitchen.
