Kern River Valley Art Association

The Great Western Art Competition Is Here!

The KRVAA proudly presents its annual Great Western Art Show in December of each year. We'd like to thank The Arts Council of Kern for cosponsoring this event with us.

This juried show focuses exclusively on artwork that reflects the West in all its' glory, both modern and historical.

The white waters and craggy cliffs of the Kern River and towering mountains cradling Lake Isabella are a constant inspiration to the creativity that abounds in this valley.
