The not for profit organization, which was founded in 1988, offers four annual shows: a Late Winter Show in February/March, Memorial Day Show, Labor Day Show and Fall Show. Members are also given the chance to have their pieces displayed at the Town Hall in Southampton every December and January. Additionally, SAA presents the Art in the Park show (in July) and the SouthamptonFest exhibition (in October) at Agawam Park.
“Our Association is 30 years old and seeks to sponsor and help enhance the cultural of art in the local area,” added board member James Slezak. “Southampton Artists Association serves as a point of contact for individuals with questions about the art activities in our area via our website.”
An opening reception for the Labor Day Art Show will take place on Saturday, September 1 from 4 to 6 p.m., while the closing reception will be held on Friday, September 7 from 4 to 6 pm. Both events are open to the public and admission is free.
