Jackson Civic Art Association members include artists, both professional and amateur, as well as interested non-artists. We meet for the purpose of growing and enriching our appreciation of art, sharing fellowship and support, and enlarging our knowledge of various mediums and techniques. We have a wide variety of activities for our members and many of them are open to the public.
Meetings and demos: We meet regularly (usually twice a month) at the Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History. Our meeting activities include artist demonstrations, lectures, critiques, hands on demonstrations and pot lucks. Meetings are open to the public and visitors are welcome.
Exhibits: For members only, we host two juried art exhibits. They are the Annual JCAA Potter Center Art Exhibition and the JCAA Biennial Art Exhibition at the Ella Sharp Museum.
Workshops: Throughout the year, we offer workshops open to our members and the public. The instructors include guest artists and our own talented members.
Around town exhibits and Ella’s Wall of Art: Members can sign up to display their work at several locations around Jackson, including our "Wall of Art" at the museum. Pieces stay up for two months at a time and many pieces are sold from our displays.
Art à Loan: JCAA, in partnership with the Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History and the Art & Cultural Alliance of Jackson, sponsors the Art à Loan program. This is a self-sustaining program that encourages the young artists in our county to share their talents with the community.
