The Longmont Council for the Arts offers many services and programs for our visual artists from exhibition opportunities to funding.
The Artist Registry promotes local artists in all cultural arts disciplines, including painters, sculptors, textile artists, metal artists and musicians. Since its inception in 1998, the Artist Registry has displayed artists’ works through rotating art exhibitions at area businesses. And it has only improved in popularity.
Here’s how it works: area businesses partner with the Longmont Council for the Arts to decorate their business with original local art on a quarterly basis. We match their style with our Artist Registry Artists. The result has been an exciting dynamic between the artists, community and businesses. For Artists, the Artist Registry has become an excellent venue for selling Art!
Artists must be an LCA Artist member in order to participate in any of our programs.

Artist Registry has two levels of participation.
While Longmont is home to some excellent art galleries, the few can in no way serve the hundreds of excellent artists that live here. We thank our local gallery “stand-ins” listed here with the artists currently exhibiting there:

Art Op is a bi-monthly email to artists about upcoming grants, call for entries, teaching opportunities and other artist related opportunities. The LCA has partnered with the Old Firehouse Art Center, ArtWalk Longmont, Art in Public Places and its own programs to compile the artist list. LCA Affiliate organizations can place their artist opportunities for free in Art Op. Outside organizations have the option of a free text listing or to join as an LCA Affiliate for a more detailed listing with image.
Four times a year we host Artist Socials for our member artists. These events bring together our artists to mingle, talk about their art and learn about the business of art.
