    Administrative history

    Members from community art clubs from across Alberta met initially on February 10, 1968, the meeting chaired by Harry Wohlfarth, Assistant Professor of Art for the Department of Extension at the University of Alberta, with the objective of forming an association to organize the various art clubs throughout the province.

    The Alberta Community Art Clubs Association (ACACA) was created as a result and incorporated under the Societies Act on June 4, 1968. The goals of the association were to provide a building or buildings for society and community purposes, to provide a centre and suitable meeting place and studio space for various art activities of the community, and to encourage, foster and develop recognition of the importance of culture in the national life. The overall aims were to foster and maintain instruction in art and develop an interest in the knowledge of art and culture in communities throughout the province.

    One of the regular activities from the inception of the ACACA was holding juried art shows as a way to promote the purpose of the organization. Membership in the ACACA included both professional and amateur artists as well as art educators and students of art.
