About this Organization:
The Cambridge Art Association (CAA) was founded in 1944 by a group of local artists and art supporters. At the time, there was no other local association like it. The CAA was a space for exhibiting work, learning new techniques, and socializing. It was - and is - above all, a community of artists.

Today, the CAA currently maintains two gallery spaces for exhibits, as well as 5 less traditional satellite spaces. Until earlier this year, we were a juried members association. As the result of a strategic plan and long-term vision for the CAA, we are now open to all. You can read more about our 3-year goals here.


What do we do? We present roughly 25 gallery exhibits, and an additional 20 exhibits in our satellite spaces. We create opportunities for local and regional contemporary artists to engage with gallery owners, curators, collectors, and each other through networking events, portfolios reviews, and other professional development programs.


Transportation: The Kathryn Schultz Gallery is accessible via the 71 and 73 buses from Harvard Square. University Place is accessible via the MBTA Red Line at Harvard Square.
