The Irving Art Association (IAA) is dedicated to visual arts and artists in the Irving area. Established in 1956, IAA is committed to supporting year-round art appreciation and educational opportunities. The schedule includes gallery exhibits, art activities, meetings, events, and classes & workshops in art.

This last year our schedule and activities have been curtailed because of the pandemic. However, we are planning a Grand Reopening in September, when we will resume a schedule of gallery exhibits and hours, monthly meetings with art demonstrations, and more workshops, including a return to the monthly Free Basic Art Classes.

Currently, we offer participation in exhibits and free art activities like Tuesday Painters and Friday night Open Art Meetups. We’re also co-sponsoring the annual Texas & Neighbors Regional Art Exhibition, now on exhibit at the Irving Arts Center with $10,000 in awards.
