About the Klamath Art Association and Gallery: 

Located in Klamath Falls Oregon at 120 Riverside Drive, the Klamath Art Association Gallery showcases a different artist or photographer nearly every month in a cozy intimate gallery space that is a delight for gallery goers. A few months per year are dedicated to group shows. The gallery not only shows work from local artists and photographers, but also hosts shows by artists from outside the region. Admission is free. From time to time KAA offers instructional classes that are open to the public, as are all of our events.  The non-profit member supported Klamath Art Association averages 140 members. 

KAA is the oldest organization of its kind in Oregon and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1946. The Gallery is open from 12-4 PM Thursdays thru Mondays. During the months of June through September, our membership participated in the community 3rd Thursday Art Walks.
