Associated Creative Artists

The Associated Creative Artists (ACA ) is Dallas’ longest-running art association, comprised mainly of members from the DFW area. For over 60 years, it has focused on bringing together artists to encourage, publicize, and promote the creative work of its registered members and to bring them in direct contact with outstanding artists, lecturers, and art demonstrators. The ACA is an active, hard-working, art organization, dedicated to the preservation, practice, and promotion of realism art, established to provide an artistic atmosphere based on the traditional principles for the creation of fine art.  We are happy to have the Associated  Creative Artists join us this spring season with an outstanding collection of traditional realism art. The exhibit includes a large variety of canvas sizes, artistic styles, and subject matter. The artists use oil and watercolor mediums to paint a wide variety of portraits, hill country vistas, mountains, lakes, and other landscape scenes.
