About Our Auction

LPAPA is committed to not just survive the pandemic but to thrive with creative ways to raise funds to sustain our nonprofit and provide much-needed support for our Artists.

LPAPA Strong & Positive Postcard Art Auction is a unique online art auction where you will bid on an artist to paint and personalize an original 5" x 7" paintable postcard with a positive message to add to your collection or to send to a loved one. This year's theme is LPAPA LOVE in honor of Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy our artist roster of UNselfies…we asked for their UNselfie photo because of their generosity in sharing their time and talent to support nonprofit LPAPA! We hope that you will bid generously to show LPAPA and the Artists some love!

Together we will all get through this! Together we will keep LPAPA Strong!

About Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA)

The Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art organization that was originally founded in Laguna Beach in 1996 by five artists -- Ken Auster, Jacobus Baas, Cynthia Britain, Saim Caglayan, and John Cosby -- with a mission to preserve the history of the plein air movement of 19th century California, to support the tradition as it exists today, and to foster a network among plein air painters nationwide.

LPAPA is considered the stewards of Laguna’s plein air painting legacy, which helped establish our town as an artists’ colony more than a century ago. Early plein air artists -- Edgar Payne, Frank Cuprien, Anna Hills, William Wendt, and other now famous artists -- founded the original Laguna Beach Art Association and opened the first art gallery in 1918. The permanent collection they started later established the town’s museum. LPAPA is committed to continuing the outdoor painting tradition and preserving the Laguna Plein Air Painting legacy.

LPAPA's mission includes career opportunities and education programs to help enhance the livelihood of our artist members and community, as well as educate and inspire the next generation of artists to continue the legacy.

Your support keeps the Laguna plein air painting tradition and legacy --- past, present and future alive! Thank you!
