Welcome to the Siskiyou Artists Association (SAA) web site. We are a congenial group of Northern California artists who meet regularly to exchange ideas and learn more about visual arts. SAA supports local artists by providing critiques and demonstrations at scheduled meetings, workshops, and an annual show in late summer. Each year the association also awards scholarships to local graduating high school and college art students. SAA has been active in Siskiyou County for more than sixty years. See some of our history here.

February 2019 Artworks of the Month

SAA General Meeting & Critique - Sunday, February 17, 2018

SAA's first meeting of 2019 was held on Sunday, February 17, at the Lake Shastina Community Center. Following the business meeting, Willo Balfrey, a much respected artist and long-time member and supporter of SAA, provided a comprehensive and constructive critique of twenty new pieces brought to the meeting by SAA members.

Members present selected three paintings as Artworks of the Month: Bee Soule's acryclic painting, "Dusk in the Woods" (left in photo), Kathleen Borgman's oil painting, "Railroad Park" (right in photo), and Carol Wilder's water media painting (not available for the photograph).

Next Meeting - Sunday, April 14

The next meeting will be held on Sunday, April 14, 2019, at the Lake Shastina Community Center. A critique will follow the business meeting, which starts at 2:00 p.m. Members planning to bring an artwork for the critique must have their work at the Community Center by 1:30 p.m.
