Local Connections

Local Connections are active across California and Nevada. Several groups have had meetings. The activities at these meetings include; critique sessions, Show and Tell, writing artist statements, sharing the SAQA global trunk show and visiting Museums. The advantage is meeting closer to home.

If these activities are of interest to you, send a request to contact the group nearest your location. If you have questions for any of the coordinators, please use the contact form.
