The Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA) is announcing its Summer Art Festival, where twenty local artists will exhibit more than 100 pieces of art. The festival will run August 10-11, Friday from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. at The Oaks Club of Valencia (TOC).
On Friday evening, starting at 6 p.m., a live band will be performing for dinner patrons. Saturday evening from 5-8 p.m., a free artists’ reception will be held, featuring live entertainment, appetizers and desserts with a no-host bar. Although the golf course is private to members, the restaurant is open to the public for lunch and dinner.
“The public is invited to view the art show anytime and to join our artists’ reception,” said Laurie Morgan, SCAA Events Coordinator. Artists will provide live demonstrations in a wide variety of styles and media. “You’re invited to look over their shoulders and ask questions. Local officials, artist members and art leaders will grace the occasion.”
In its 29th year, SCAA’s main goal is to make visual art visible in the community. It provides free art demonstrations to the public; participates in community events; awards yearly scholarships for high school art students and College of the Canyons; and loans art to local medical offices and facilities to uplift the spirits of patients.

The Oaks Club of Valencia is located at 26550 Heritage View Lane in Valencia. For more information about the Summer Art Festival, contact event co-chair Tony Barba at 818-968-6333.
