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.

Revised Gallery Rules

After discussions at Board and Members meetings over the last two months, the Board gave final approval to revisions to the Gallery Rules. The changes require members who do not hang in a monthly show, but who have an inventory of artwork in the gallery, to gallery sit twice per month or pay the $10 sitting fee.  Click here for the revised gallery rules.  The revised rules go into effect immediately for new members and on Sept 1, 2016, for existing members.
