SAA Critique Meetings

Several times a year, SAA schedules critique programs for SAA members. At each critique meeting, two or three artworks (paintings, drawings, sculptures, or carvings) are selected as Artworks of the Month. These pieces are displayed at the last meeting of the year, in October, and from these, we vote for Artwork of the Year. The winning artist has his/her name engraved on a silver bowl, which the artist keeps for one year until the next October meeting.
