St. Augustine Art Association
The St. Augustine Art Association has been promoting excellence in the arts since 1924. Located in the Historic District of the nation's oldest city, the Association produces monthly juried exhibits of works by emerging and professional artists as well as the annual Thanksgiving Art & Craft Festival. The art gallery serves as the community's cultural hub, housing a collection of "Lost Colony" art and providing a gathering place for workshops, lectures, children's programs, concerts and special events.
