"LA JOLLA ART ASSOCIATION CELEBRATES 95 YEARS"
Ellen Browning Scripps holds an important place among the early painters and artists of La Jolla. In 1918 as a painter herself, she gathered in her home other artists who hoped to foster art appreciation and provide exhibition venues for their art. And the La Jolla Art Association was born, with Miss Scripps providing the first gallery space in 1920. Among the LJAA charter members were the iconic California “plein aire” impressionist painters A.R.Valentien, Maurice Braun, and Charles Fries. Charles Reiffel was a member, and Alfred Mitchell held his final LJAA exhibition in 1966.
To Celebrate the LJAA 95th Anniversary and to perpetuate this historic organization the group will hold a 95TH ANNIVERSARY FUNDRAISER from November 1 to December 15, 2012. The membership is donating 60 pieces of original art to be given away to 50 lucky ticket holders who make a $200 donation for one of 50 tickets.
