The Schenectady Art Society (SAS) was founded in 1967. Our purpose is to encourage local artists by offering educational programs and opportunities to exhibit and sell their work to the community.

Art Interests:  I always admired watercolors for their fluidity and color. Because of my GE career, I was not able to pursue this interest until shortly before I retired. I enrolled in a local class for watercolor beginners in 1996. I was hooked; and since then I have won awards at both local and regional shows. Presently, as a member of the Schenectady Art Society, Colonie Art League, and Albany Center Gallery, I regularly participate in their shows and other exhibitions as well as set up at local outdoor shows in which I have won numerous awards.

Since retiring, I have been exploring acrylic abstract and non-representational painting. I am drawn toward this type of painting because of the colors, shapes and surprises one gets in the process of completing a work.
