    Administrative history

    The Creative Arts Association was founded in 1948 and is devoted to promoting the arts in the City of Guelph. The Association consists of artists, artisans, and other people interested in the arts. In addition to hosting displays and shows, the Association publishes a regular newsletter to promote its activities and to list art events in the area, and hosts social events for its members and for the general public. The Association is still active in Guelph.

    For a more detailed history of the Association, see Brimmell, Helen. The Creative Arts Association: A Survey from 1948-1997 (Call number REF 971.343 BRI).
