Throughout the year, the Michael Victor II Art library of the Springfield Art Association (SAA) receives generous donations of gently used books. The art-related books and other great titles from these donations are then sold at discounted prices in support of the art library which houses over 3,000 art books and thought-provoking lectures that are all available to the public. This year, the SAA faculty and student pottery sale will also be taking place on Saturday, along with the book sale. The SAA offers art classes and summer art camps, provides public tours of Edwards Place, presents curated art exhibitions and represents local artists in the SAA Collective, among many other programs. Other upcoming SAA-hosted events that are returning this year include the Edwards Place Fine Art Fair, Paint the Street (with a Paint the Driveway option) and Roasted, a unique ceramic raku fundraiser event with fire, food and live music. Visit the website for more information. springfieldart.org.
