The Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA) inducted its 2019 Executive Board on December 17, at a year-end holiday party in Newhall. Formally installed were Charlotte Mullich (President), David Veal (Vice President), Sandy Fisher (Treasurer) and Jeanne Iler (Recording Secretary).
Additional board members are: Zony Gordon, Mardi Georgio, Chrystal (CK) Walker, Olga Kaczmar, Cathy King, Howard Marcovitch, Cheri Marcovitch, Laurie Morgan, Scott Parker, Lisa Barr, Gary Friedman, and Ted Koscheski.
On the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m., SCAA hosts a general membership meeting with professional demonstrations. After the demonstration, the evening concludes with a raffle of the demonstration piece or an art piece from the artist. All meetings are free and open to the public, and visitors are welcomed. Workshops from well-known artists and marketing professionals are held two to three times each year. A monthly plein aire destination is available for the outdoor painter.
SCAA Gallery is located at 22508 6th St. in Newhall (just off Main St. beside the public parking lot near the Canyon Theatre Guild). It is generally open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In addition, members display and sell art at many venues throughout the City of Santa Clarita.
“We promote our mission of Making Visual Art visible through community outreach programs that are educational, child friendly and free to the general public,” said Charlotte Mullich. “We award scholarships to art students, from high school to college, in Santa Clarita. Our emphasis is to be a support group devoted to the enrichment of members experience through the visual arts.”
SCAA, a non-profit 501(c)(3), was founded in 1989 and features a broad range of talent, from professional to novice. Members encourage, assist, develop, and exchange ideas/techniques on artistic skills. Visit www.santaclaritaartists.org for the latest information.
