After sixteen years at our Franklin Street gallery location, sadly, it is time for us to move on from that location. Arnold Besse, owner of the building that has been home to our gallery, is in the process of selling the building so he may retire. We appreciate his generosity over the many years of hosting SSAA’s gallery and we also appreciate his kind regard for us.
The October 2019 "Weather" exhibit was the last exhibit in this location. SSAA has been asked to vacate by October 29, 2019 in preparation for occupancy by the new owners and future tenants. The rent being requested is beyond our ability to pay and we are in search mode to find a new home for our artists.
We would like to thank Frank and April Lutton, Greg and Debbie Scott, Larry Brechner, Steve Bensing and Peggy Carter for volunteering to move our possessions to a storage unit on a very wet, miserable and cold Saturday! They went above and beyond for SSAA.
The SSAA Board has decided that we will continue as an arts organization. Specific plans presently are in flux, but SSAA plans to continue initially by using pop-up or floating exhibit spaces in the area and possibly finding a new home for our artists. Any suggestions will be gratefully received. We will keep you posted.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact any of the SSAA Board of Directors.
Thank You for your continued membership and support. Sincerely,
Southern Shore Art Association Dana Dabagia, President 219-871-1590 Larry Brechner, Vice-President 219-746-6609 April Lutton, Treasurer 219-898-6263 Kathleen Hocker, Secretary 219-552-8067 For more information, visit the SSAA website at www.SouthernShoreArtAssociation.com or visit the SSAA Facebook page
