Greater Kansas City Art Association

The Greater Kansas City Art Association is a non-profit organization that has actively promoted the appreciation of visual arts in the Kansas City area by providing art exhibits and services to the public. It was founded in 1956 by a group of  local artists with the idea of bringing together as many of those local artists as possible to promote an exchange of thoughts and techniques and to be able to approach the public as a unified group of professionals. 
     The association meets every second Monday of the month at The Old Mission Church, 5519 State Park Road, (SE Corner Shawnee Mission Parkway One Block East of Mission Road) Fairway, Kansas 66205. Meetings are informative and fun. We usually have a guest speaker who lectures with a slide presentation or demonstration.  There are fine artists in the Association who work in all media such as watercolor, oil, acrylic, colored pencil, pastel, inks, mixed media, sculpture, and more. Many of the members are known nationally and compete in national shows throughout the country winning awards while doing so.
     GKCAA wants to share with the public the enjoyment and excitement of the visual arts in this region. The services and activities of GKCAA are available to all persons regardless of race, color, creed, ethnic background or religious affiliation.

April, 2014 GKCAA Program: Group Critique
Unless we are painting with a group or have a “standby” critic available, the majority of us need to have other “eyes” look at our works and tell us what we are doing “right” and what might be “wrong” with our work. On April 14th, GKCAA will give you an opportunity to hear what other artists have to say about your works. Bring your “masterpiece” to the meeting to have your fellow artists critique and advise you. We will divide into two groups led by Greg Summers and Loreta Feeback to discuss and advise about your painting. First Aid and pills (if necessary) along with great refreshments will be provided. See you at 7:00 PM!


We have monthly Critiques, Blue Ribbon Competitions, Blue Ribbon Shows, Gallery Shows, Demonstrations, Workshops, and much More.  Come Join the fun!
