CAA is a non-profit organization open to all artists and art enthusiasts. We have 100 plus members from northern New Jersey and lower New York State. The Association was incorporated in 1965 to answer to the needs of artists in Allendale and the surrounding communities. Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September through May at Trinity Church, 55 George St., Allendale, NJ. Meetings feature painting demonstrations by well known local artists. The Association also sponsors workshops, which are open to members and non-members. To learn more, go the the "JOIN" page.

Our May programs featured a fascinating demo and a 2-day workshop with colored pencil artist Arlene Steinberg. Next season's programs will be displayed soon.

Monthly Artist: Terri Rosenblum


Terri Rosenblum is a very talented artist, working mainly in graphite and pastel. Her expressive portrait of a baboon, seen at the NY Zoo, is very dramatic against the black background
