The Stamford Art Association is Stamford’s oldest art association and art gallery.
The Association’s Townhouse Gallery holds eight consecutive shows each year, two of which are solo exhibits and six are juried exhibits with prominent jurors from art schools, galleries and institutions in New York and surrounding areas, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, Bruce Museum, and Museum of Modern Art. Exhibits include the Faber Birren Color Award Show, a national art competition, and the High School Student Show for Fairfield County students as well as 4 other themed juried exhibits. All artists, not just members, are welcome to submit their work for exhibits. Annual competitions draw submissions from local, regional, and national artists. The SAA also curates the 3 yearly “Art at the Ferguson” exhibits at the Ferguson Library. The Stamford Art Association is supported by grants from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, The City of Stamford, the Kuriansky Foudation and generous donations from individual artists and friends.
