The visual arts committee has announced its upcoming annual SAAC Membership Show and invites all area artists to submit their work for the exhibit. The Membership Show will be held December 3-19, 2019 in the Price and Merkle Galleries. Artists who are not SAAC members are welcome to join SAAC when they deliver their artwork if they would like to participate in the show. An artist’s reception is planned for Tuesday, December 3, from 5:30-7:00pm to honor all of the participants.

Area artists are welcome to select two favorite works, created at any point in their lifetime, and deliver them to SAAC for the Membership Show. The only rule is that work shown in the previous year’s Membership Show may not be submitted again. New SAAC members may submit two entries for free when they join SAAC, instead of one. For existing members, the first artwork entry is free, and the second piece is $10 to enter. Participants are encouraged to sell their work, but it is not a requirement. Entries for the show may be delivered to SAAC November 19, 20 and 21, 2019, 9:00-5:00 pm or contact us to schedule late delivery for Monday morning December 2. Just submit your paperwork or call us with the information before Thanksgiving so that we know what is coming and can save a place for your work in the gallery.  Artists may pick up their works on December 20, from 9:00-1:00 pm.

As in past years – anything goes! All 2-D and 3-D fine arts media will be accepted, including photography, computer generated art, jewelry, video, fiber art, and multi-media. Pieces must be original. Artwork completed under classroom supervision and/or reproduced from published material or work by other artists is not accepted. 2-D works must be completely ready for gallery display – framed in a clean, neat and professional manner with a secure wire hanger. 3-D works, and multi-media presentations must be display ready.

“At SAAC, it’s an essential part of our mission to be a place where artists of all kinds have the opportunity to create and exhibit their work,” said Laura Allen, SAAC executive director. “The Membership Show is great way to get involved with the artistic community and even sell your work!”

The SAAC Membership Show is sponsored by William P. Cook and Associates. For more information about this show, please call the SAAC office at 870-862-5474.
