|Welcome! We are celebrating 63 Years of Serving the Arts Community|
The Washington Art Association--a not-for-profit organization run principally by volunteers-- was established in 1952 by a group of local artists who were seeking ways to nurture creative life in and around Litchfield County. Their goals were to promote greater understanding and appreciation of art, and to encourage and facilitate the study, creation, and exhibition of art.
The high caliber of exhibitions for which the Washington Art Association is known was established early on, with celebrated artists such as Alexander Calder, Andre Masson and Yves Tanguy participating in early shows.
Since its founding, the Washington Art Association has staged more than 450 exhibitions, which have showcased the work of both emerging and established artists from all over the world. Our exhibits attract more than 10,000 visitors per year, drawing people from both near and far.

The exhibition will open with an artists' reception on Saturday, September 12, from 4 - 6 pm. The photographs of Kaplan and Roth follow related paths: photographing heavy industry - similar subject matter but with a different eye. Jay Kaplan ranges broadly in geographic terms and in subject matter, photographing agro-industry, mining, railroads, power plants, paper mills, textile mills, factories and waste plants. Kaplan is concerned with exploring the unresolved tension between the imposing and sometimes quite beautiful manifestations of industry and the ugly br... click for more
