SAQA Conferences

SAQA's annual conference is an opportunity for our members to gather together, to network and socialize, to attend informative talks and presentations geared to help one grow as an artist, and to visit local art venues and landmarks. 

With assistance from local members, our Special Events Committee plans a full schedule of fun activities, informative presenters, local activities, exhibitions, and more!  

2022 SAQA Conference



We’re going virtual again! Due to continuing concerns about the future of COVID19, the SAQA Board has moved our 2021 conference to a virtual event. The Special Events Committee will be looking for great presenters and new ideas for an amazing virtual experience.

Our in-person conference “Bridging the Gulf: Fabric to Fine Art” in St. Petersburg, Florida, will take place April 28-May 1, 2022.

Stay tuned for more details!
