For the past 13 years since its founding, the association has been exhibiting its artworks at the Taiwanese American Heritage Week in Orange County, an annual event held in May. The association also held a special exhibition in San Diego last year (2018). In addition, the association has been invited on numerous occasions to exhibit in a multiethnic event-Art Walk Day in Los Angeles. The patrons of the association’s exhibition consist mainly of art collectors, art critics, and other artists.
The list of past presidents includes Nami Yang, Huai-Shion Tsai, and Gary Hung. The current president of the association is Tomi Yang. Being professional artists, the members of the association are active in their respective artistic domains. Through hard work and dedication to their profession, the members are well loved and respected by art aficionados.
