Welcome
a home for South African Artists since 1902.

Since it’s inception in 1902, the South African Society of Artists has had an enormous influence on local art development and appreciation. The society currently comprises over 450 members, and is headed by a Council comprising 10 members, all of whom have their particular portfolios. Many members also volunteer their help in organizing and running the exhibitions and other events. Many nationalities are represented amongst our members who contribute to a varied and interesting mix of cultures, ideas and talents

 

 The AthenaeumMonthly Meetings

Each month, SASA holds a Society meeting, at which demonstrations by well known artists and teachers in all mediums, as well as lectures and illustrated talks on art history and related subjects are given. These are held at The Athenaeum, in Newlands, Cape Town. Members and guests alike are welcome. Meetings are held on the last Thursday of the month, at 7pm in the evening, excepting December. The society possesses a well-stocked lending library of art-related books, magazines, videos and DVD’s for its members.

In the winter months, SASA also arranges life-drawing sessions, as well as various workshops by renowned art teachers. Informal groups of members are also encouraged to meet for a variety of activities and outings.

A monthly newsletter keeps the members informed of current SASA affairs and events. The regular meetings, social evenings, outings and planned visits to art galleries afford SASA members the opportunity to meet with fellow artists and to share in many artistic activities. All persons with an interest in art are invited to join. Currently, the society is based in Cape Town, however the SASA Constitution permits groups in other centres to form branches of the Society. Country Membership is available to interested persons who reside outside of Cape Town.
