The SCAA MEMBER EXHIBIT

SCAA MEMBER EXHIBIT now through February 26th, 2018 at the Mable House Arts Center.

The ARTIST creates, transforms and brings to life that which cannot be seen or felt easily. They challenge the status quo, open doors to new ways of seeing the world and encourage us to reach out, and to connect with each other.

Blessed with extraordinary gifts of vision, skill and execution our SCAA Artist members inspire us, entertain us and keep us thinking… dreaming… and we, in turn, strive to provide them with the community, resources, exposure and professional development that they need to thrive.
