Stamford Art Association

Established in 1971, the Stamford Art Association is a nonprofit 501(3)c organization whose members include painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers and
In its 47th year, our mission as an arts organization is to provide a forum where emerging and professional artists can discuss and exhibit their work within the community and compete in juried shows. The Association's Townhouse Gallery holds eight consecutive shows each year, two of which are solo exhibits and six are juried exhibits with prominent jurors from art schools, galleries and institutions in New York and surrounding areas, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, Bruce Museum, and Museum of Modern Art. We host an international exhibit, the Faber Birren Color Award Show, and a High School Student Show for Fairfield County students. All artists, not just members, are welcome to submit their work for exhibits. Annual competitions draw submissions from local, regional, and national artists.
The SAA also curates the 4 yearly "Art at the Ferguson" exhibits at the Ferguson Library. SAA is supported by grants from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, the City of Stamford, the Kuriansky Foundation and
generous donations from individual artists and friends.
