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.

Vote Now for Artwork of the Year

SAA held its last meeting of the year on Sunday, October 15. Several members whose paintings were eligible for Artwork of the Year were not able to attend, so a motion was made and passed to vote by E-mail. Members must vote before October 31, 2017, and the result will be announced during the first week in November.

Once again, volunteers are needed for 2018 offices. We especially need members willing to service as President, Vice President, Show Chair (which could be filled by co-chairs) and Scholarship Committee Chair. New volunteers to fill these positions will receive support from current SAA Board Members.


Our members range from beginning artists to skilled professionals. All you need to join is enthusiasm for visual arts and $20. Just complete the membership form and mail it with a check for annual dues ($20 for an individual or $30 per family) to Siskiyou Artists Association, P. O. Box 1654, Mount Shasta, CA 96067. You can join anytime, so we will see you at our next meeting.

Two Shows in 2018 - SAA 61st Annual Show and a SAA Members' Show at Liberty Arts

SAA will take its usual Holiday Break and reconvene with our first general meeting and critique on February 18, 2018. In addition to our 61st Annual Show, SAA members will have an opportunity to exhibit up to three paintings under the theme "Hopes, Dreams, and Nightmares" at Liberty Arts in Yreka during November and December 2018. Details for participating in the SAA Members show will be announced in 2018.
