The LAC was established as the South Essex Arts Association in 1971 with the mandate to create, sustain and celebrate the arts. Over the years, the LAC has developed into a cultural pillar for uptown Leamington and a regional arts and culture destination. Supported by the Municipality of Leamington, donors and its members, LAC is a 10,000 square foot facility comprising of four exhibition spaces, a market place artist market, café and wine bar, an art supply store, an education studio and meeting spaces.

The LAC is an award winning organization known for its wide range of activities, and emphasis on community and local programming alongside ancillary events. The LAC presents a changing calendar of up to 40 diverse exhibitions each year and is home to the notable Henry collection and the LAC permanent collection, collectively comprising of over 600 Canadian, international, historical, and contemporary works of art.
