SOCIETY OF WESTERN ARTIST CELEBRATES ITS 75th ANNIVERSARY This year the San Francisco Chapter of SWA is celebrating 75 years of its dedication to the exhibition, instruction and dissemination of representational art. Originally named "The Society for Sanity in Art," our organization was founded by Josephine Hancock Logan, and incorporated in Chicago in 1936. Subsequently, several branches of the Society were established in various parts of the United States, including San Franciso, Boston and Los Angeles. The San Francisco Chapter started in 1939. The purpose of the Society for Sanity in Art was to encourage and promote sane and competent art, regardless of "school" or style. The forward for our 18th Annual Exhibition of Art in 1957 was written by former President of the United States, Herbert Hoover. He wrote, "To the Society of Western Artists, you still have a great job to do if you completely transform everything from billboards to art galleries into good taste - and real art. I wish you Godspeed."
The San Francisco Chapter, along with our San Joaquin Valley Chapter that serves the Central Valley, strives to further art education and exhibitions for the purpose of sustaining the highest quality of representational art to the public through our featured artist demonstrators, workshops with local and national artists, and our exhibitions.
SWA is open to everyone interested in the arts. Visit our pages to see the art education and exhibitions that we offer.
