The Future of Sanford Art Association

posted Apr 2, 2018, 12:55 PM by Sanford Art   [ updated Apr 2, 2018, 12:56 PM ]

At our Members meeting on March 6th, due to declining business and insufficient funds to be able to sustain the cost of maintaining the Gallery, the vote was cast to close our physical presence in Sanford as of April 30, 2018.  However, this is not the end of the Sanford Art Association!  We will stay active in local and regional art shows and will look for locations to provide workshops to further educate and mentor artists in our area.

2017 Show Schedule and Themes

posted Nov 2, 2016, 2:18 PM by Sanford Art

Check out the "About SAA" page for the listing of our 2017 Shows and Themes.  For 2017, we are incorporating two month shows into our schedule.  By keeping the work up for a longer period of time, more potential customers will get to view the artwork.  It will also reduce workload for those members who organize and hang the shows.
