Welcome to the website of the Greater Haverhill Arts Association, the cornerstone of the area’s blossoming art scene. Since 1971 the GHAA has provided artists and enthusiasts with a sense of community as well as opportunities to share their art.

 

Our various artist members work in every medium: acrylic, oil, pastel, watercolor, drawing, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and printmaking. A number of them accept commissions for landscapes, still lifes, or portraits (people, pets, buildings).

 

One of the ways we support artists is to offer twice- monthly workshops for learners of all ages and skills. Another is to present painting demonstrations by esteemed professional artists. Both opportunities are open to the public.

 

Our mission is to promote art and artists and to keep art integral to our lives and accessible and affordable for all.

Lynne sensed her mother’s presence while painting an Adirondack chair of her mother’s favorite color – bright, knock-your-socks-off pink. After the initial surprise of that experience, Lynne began placing the chair into various locations which had special meaning to the artist or her mother.

Steve Greco painting demo March 26, 2017

Our first demonstration of the new year was wildlife artist Steve Greco who gave a most interesting demo - painting animals realistically in acrylic, with a gray wolf as his subject. An accomplished artistic interpreter of wildlife, he is also very knowledgeable about habitats and threats to species. As he painted and explained his unique process for rendering details such as fur and eyes, he talked about his experiences in the field, the importance of public awareness, and the role of the artist in the scheme of things.

An artist and a naturalist, Steve Greco believes that the natural
