Everyone is welcome!

The Savannah Art Association promotes community awareness and appreciation of the visual arts in the Savannah area. It encourages local artists to show and learn about the arts.


The association conducts art exhibitions, workshops, and operates two galleries.

It operates as a non-profit corporation, registered in the State of Georgia, and certified as a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt, non-profit corporation by the Internal Revenue Service.




This association of artists and patrons has been continually in existence since 1920 when a group of Savannah ladies led by Mrs. Mills B. Lane began meeting in their homes. Thanks to members' dedication over the years it has continued to thrive.




                A network of artists of different media with different levels of experience. We inspire each other!


Work featured in the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport Gallery.

About SAA

Established in 1920, in the basement of Mills B Lane's home, the Savannah Art Association (SAA) has a long history of promoting the visual arts in Savannah. We welcome all levels of artists, from beginner to professional, in a friendly and nurturing environment. Artists help one another to learn new techniques, improve
their work and succeed in the art world.  

The SAA conducts exhibits, demonstrations, workshops and educational programs that support its members and the community at large.

We also provide opportunities for our members to showcase their work, by partnering with local business and associations willing to offer venues for openings and the other art events. Encouragement and recognition for outstanding work are facilitated through awards. 


General membership meetings are held, with additional events, discussions, exhibits, and shows scheduled throughout the year. 


As we celebrate the centennial of The Savannah Art Association, the oldest in Georgia,
we look fondly at our history and have our eyes in the future.
