The Oakland Art Association Juried Small Format Show

The Oakland Art Association (OAA) presents small format paintings, photographs, prints, etchings, and more.  

OAA is a group of roughly 60 artist members, founded in 1957. The Association is involved primarily in arranging shows in public spaces for its members in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.  

OAA is a registered non-profit organization that directs all sales commissions and donations from their members, patrons, and other sources toward their Grant Program, which in turn offers monetary support to local visual art education programs. Currently OAA is supplying grant funding for art supplies at the Grass Valley (Oakland) Elementary School, general funding at The Museum of Children's Art in Oakland, and a specific OAA scholarship  program at the "Crucible" arts education center also in Oakland. 

Artists interested in Joining OAA should apply through the website:
