The Schenectady Art Society (SAS) was founded in 1967. Our purpose is to encourage local titles through education and opportunities to share our work with the community.

SAS sponsors two or more member Shows per year at various locations, in addition to meetings with demonstrations by well known area titles. Our meeting site is the First Reformed Church of Scotia located at 224 N. Ballston Ave (Route 50) in Scotia. Meetings occur on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30pm, six times each year.

Membership is $30 per year and we offer a Student Rate of $15 per year. We always look forward to having new members! Join Us!
