The DE/DC/MD/WV SAQA Region is comprised of Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, and West Virginia. We are a growing region and have recently included Delaware. We have a vibrant group of about 90 members with a number of Juried Artist Members. Our region has created a number of regional exhibitions. Simple Lines, an exhibition about the artist's perception of living in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area is currently traveling with the Mancuso shows in 2023.
The DE/DC/MD/WV SAQA Regional Newsletter is distributed through SAQA regional email. It summarizes what is happening in our region, presents opportunities for participation, provides links to more information, and highlights the accomplishments of local members.
The DE/DC/MD/WV region has three Local Connections (PODs) that meet regularly in different parts of Maryland.
• The Bmore POD meets the 3rd Saturday of alternate months by Zoom.
• The Southern Maryland POD meets the 1st Saturday of each month on Zoom.
• The Eastern Shore POD has many in-person meetings and activities.

The DE/DC/MD/WV SAQA Facebook Group is closed, so your posts will only be visible to members. Information that may interest DE/DC/MD/WV SAQA members is posted to the group. Any member can join the group by going to the Facebook group and requesting to join. Membership is approved within a day. We have found this group to be a very fluid method of communicating as a region. You can keep up to date, get to know other SAQA members and enjoy their work.
