On the tables you’ll see a display of bowls, goblets, teapots, wine caddies, plates, cups and more, befitting a culinary celebration. Even “food” created in glass. Embellishing the tables will be woven runners and painting, photography or fiber art placemat-napkin sets. Footing the table line will be large photos, one a baker in his dusty “uniform.”

Coming in May May 2 – June 1, 2014 Opening Reception First Friday the 2nd of May, 5-8 pm "ART IN GOOD TASTE" An Exhibition with FOOD as Subject
SSAA's May Exhibition will showcase one of everyone's favorite things …..FOOD.
"ART IN GOOD TASTE: an Exhibition with FOOD as subject" is the title and the theme. Whether a cluster of ripe cherries, a field of wheat, a festive dinner table, a still life of vegetables or a six layer chocolate cake, food, sustainable, scrumptious or succulent, will be the subject only limited by the artist's imagination. All media will be included: fine art, photography, sculpture, ceramic, fabric, glass. Call for artists has been sent out (and is listed herein) and both members and guests are invited to what promises to be a lively and delicious exhibition. See the "News" page for information on how to participate in this exhibition.
Coming in June "FUR, FEATHERS, SKIN & SCALES" Artworks of the Animal
Members of the animal kingdom have been depicted in works of art for centuries and remain a popular subject. From the creatures of the jungles to those of the air and the oceans and those who share our lives domestically, animals in their variety of color, texture, size, personality and purpose are our planet partners. Our June exhibition affords regional member and guest artists the opportunity to be animal-inspired through painting, sculpture, photography and other media. Call for artists will go out mid-April, but start painting, sculpting and photographing now!
