Welcome to the SAA’s new blog!

Welcome to the SAA’s new blog!

The Society of Animal Artists has an exciting year ahead, with our 50th Annual Exhibition opening on September 4 at the San Diego Natural History Museum. Our artist-members are signing up in record numbers to attend the opening events, and we have many new Patron members as well – many of whom have joined as Patron members just to have the privilege of joining us in San Diego. We are anticipating major feature articles about our 50th Annual Exhibition in both Southwest Art and Western Art Collector magazines, and I am working on some additional national publicity as well. Thanks to Tour Director David Wagner, we also have a contract with an exciting venue for our 2011 exhibition – and I should be able to reveal the name of that museum in the next few weeks.

Despite the uncertain economic and political climate of the past couple years, the artists of the SAA continue to produce the finest animal art in the world, and they are doing remarkable work on behalf of conservation and humane causes as well.

Follow this blog, visit our new-and-improved website: and our virtual museum: and be inspired.
