Saco Bay Artists seeks to enhance members' skills and provide forums to exhibit and sell their artwork. Those forums include workshops, critiques, live demonstrations, group outings, paint outs and summer art shows. The group also participates in the promotion of art and culture as well as public service in the local community. During the summer months artists from all over New England show their work in the Saco Bay Artists shows held on the library lawn in Ocean Park, Maine
The Saco Bay Artists meet the second Monday of each month at Saco Parks and Recreation, 75 Franklin St., Saco, ME, Room 203 (See MAP). Meetings will be from 10:30 AM-12:30 PM and will include a short business meeting followed by a demonstration. All artists are welcome to attend our meetings. Please visit, and join us if you like!
First meeting for 2022 will be Monday, March 14 at 10:30 AM. Saco Bay Artists member, Christine Labaree, will host a demonstration at the March meeting on how she set up a website for her art (https://www.christinelabaree.com/) to use as a sales and marketing tool. A number of SBA members voiced an interest in creating websites for themselves but don’t know where to start or are concerned that the process might be too technologically cumbersome. Fortunately the hosting service at Fine Art Studio Online (FASO) makes it easy because it’s designed specifically for artists (not IT professionals!) and some marketing tools are included in the FASO subscription. Christine will take us behind the scenes on her website to show what she can do with it and how.
There will be a presentation on April 14 by Robert Dunn on painting with various mediums. Details to follow.
