Arts Alive Board * Bill Gorajia * Treasurer

In 1960, Dominick Frasciella and Maxine Piester envisioned starting an art group. To that end, they gathered together 17 other artists and called the new group the Corona Art Guild. Three years later, the name was changed to the Corona Art Association and has remained the same for the last 50 years. The purpose of this organization now is to encourage and develop the appreciation, study and practice of the visual arts and to further educate, inspire and enrich the lives of others through our programs, exhibits and activities. We are very fortunate to be in our present location as it allows us to hold our meetings, demos, workshops, receptions, and the luxury of hanging our art for extended displays.


A member of the Arts Alive the CAA promote art in the community and provide opportunities for individuals to learn about the visual arts, enhance creative skills through classes and demonstrations, and by participating in art shows and various community events.

Membership is open to anyone interested in learning more about the visual arts and promoting and advancing the role of the arts within our community.

The Corona Art Association is actively involved in exhibitions at the CAA Gallery and throughout the community. The Corona Art Association sponsors six major art shows throughout the year which are open to the CAA members.

 The Corona Art Association awards four or more (depending on donations received) scholarships every year to four graduating seniors from the Corona-Norco Unified School District. Each scholarship recipient receives a $500.00 scholarship.
