The Society Of Animal Artists Celebrates 60 Years

SAA artists at the 1980 Exhibition/Convention in San Antonio, TX

This year is an exciting one for the Society of Animal Artists! Founded in 1960, the organization will celebrate its 60th Anniversary this year, so I thought it a perfect time to take a look back in time. Below are several different photos from the past of current and late SAA members and their works. I challenge you to take a close look at each one and see if you can guess the mystery artist. The correct answers are located at the bottom of the blog post, so you can see how well you did.

So . . . How did you do? I'm looking forward to sharing many more interesting photos and facts about the SAA's rich history, as well as our founding members, with you in future posts throughout this year, as we celebrate our 60 years in the making!

Until next time ~ Rachelle Siegrist for the SAA
