The jury was recently held for the Society of Animal Artist's 62nd Art and the Animal Exhibition, and excitedly 125 SAA artists had their artwork juried into the show. The Annual Exhibition for 2022 will be held at the beautiful Turtle Bay Exploration Park located in Redding, CA. The exhibition will be on display September 24, 2022 – January 1, 2023, with the opening weekend taking place October 7-8th.
During this recent jury for the annual exhibition, two SAA long-time members achieved Distinguished Signature Member status. This happens once a member has had their work juried into at least 15 annual exhibitions. We want to congratulate Linda Rossin and Sean Murtha for achieving this milestone in the world of art!
There is more great news for six other SAA members. These members were promoted from Associate membership to Signature level, as each had attained that promotion through earning points in SAA exhibitions. We want to congratulate these six artists: Mans Bergendal, Mark Dedrie, Sharon Hester, Michael Pape, Tamara Pokorny, and Amy Bartlett Wright!
