Our Spring Member LSAG Show is held in April and is a Lone Star Art Guild qualifier. Members who win awards qualify to show their work at the Lone Star Art Guild (LSAG) Convention which is held in July or August giving members the opportunity to compete on a regional level. LSAG consists of 18 independent art leagues located within a 200-mile radius of Houston Texas.

National Show, NSA also has a National Show in October with entries submitted online.  Along with these shows, NSA offers artists monthly meetings with demos and periodic workshops.

Many NSA members also enjoy Plein Air Outings every Saturday with Bay Area Plein Air Painters. Check with Meetup or see the specifics on upcoming events below.

Online Groups
Two Meetup Group to get involved with are “Explore the Art Community” and “Bay Area Plein Air Painters”. “Explore the Art Community” tells members of NSA meetings and “Bay Area Plein Air Painters” posts locations the group will meet to paint outside each Saturday morning.Learn More about NSA activities through Meetup by clicking here!
