SASi’s 2019 Pond Life Calendars are available NOW
Calendars $25 • Frames $30 (black, gold or silver)
Our calendars consist of 12 original pieces of hand pulled silk-screened art. Each month is designed by a different artist, giving you twelve individual original art prints. Featured in the art are frogs, geese, herons, insects, ducks and fish, all being part of life around a pond.
This year our Calendar is dedicated in memory of Jean Goebel. Jean was a long time member of Southern Arts Society and was ever so faithful at volunteering and sharing her time with us. Jean was a talented artist and illustrator. Over the years, Jean did many calendar pages for SASi and was there to help guide us in our designs. Her last calendar page will be in our 2019 edition. Jean was a fun loving and energetic person who was always happy to participate in any artistic endeavor. We will miss her deeply.
Our Calendars are shipped all across the US. Please call to have one shipped to you or a friend. They make a wonderful gift. Frames need only be purchased once.
Needing a fundraiser for the Southern Arts Society, our late founder A.B. Snow turned to her longtime friend Mary Goslen of Winston Salem for help. Mary did her own silk-screening calendar and A.B. thought we could do that as well. For over 30 years, SASI (Southern Arts Society) has been designing and silk screening by hand this Limited Edition Calendar to sell.
Each year we select a theme for the calendars. Some past themes have been favorite books, children\’s stories, flowers, ocean, mountains, trees, famous cities, to name a few.
There are many different ways to produce a serigraph or silk screen. This one process we have used. The designs are cut or torn out of craft paper and transferred by photo emulsion to a silk screen. Varying colors of ink are put on the side of the screen and blended with a large squeegee. Then we pull the squeegee across the screen pushing the ink through the screen and onto the paper. It may take up to four hours to print one page. They are each a unique and original work of art.
The calendars are hand printed in a limited edition of 600. Each page is signed by the artist. Calendars are automatically reserved for you each year by number.
Please visit SASi to see the beautifully designed calendars we do each year. Calendars from past years are available upon request. Each image may be framed individually for display.
