  • A significant focus of the DPFAA is to provide a venue for the exhibiting and marketing of our member's art, primarily through art show events. In this regard, the DPFAA is considered as one of the premier art organizations in this respect. These events, as well as other organizational support tasks and events cannot be successful without volunteer support.
