You need not be an artist to join the Klamath Art Association – all are welcome!! Your membership helps us provide opportunity for local artists to show their work, and for Klamath Falls residents and visitors to enjoy art by local artists (and occasionally by those farther away). Membership benefits are huge! Networking within the community, and learning about statewide opportunities to view and sell artwork or photography keep KAA members extremely well informed.
