For many years, the beauty of the South Shore has been creatively expressed through the Scituate Arts Association (SAA). The SAA has nurtured the talent of budding artists, young and old, enriching the community with breathtaking works of art and appreciation of life in New England through the artist's eye.

Whether it reflects the innocence of a child, the angst of a teen, or the wisdom of an adult, the SAA is the perfect forum for visual communication using every medium imaginable.

The Scituate Arts Association is an important part of the community, from public art demonstrations, High School Scholarships, art and healing programs, to adult and children's classes, watercolor instruction, life drawing workshops or spending the day outdoors creating that unique landscape. The Scituate Arts Association runs a full range of programs that create...ART FOR LIFE.

The Scituate Arts Association in addition, is unique in having its own Art Gallery, located on Front Street in Scituate where many members have the opportunity to show and sell their creations. The SAA are also the stewards of the Historic Ellis House located on Country Way in Scituate. The Ellis House, a unique Victorian Mansion is home to all our indoor classes, workshops as well hosting 1/2 dozen studios for artist. With the addition of your help, we are in the process of restoring this unique home into its former glory.

If you have ever desired to wield a brush over canvas, inscribe in pen and ink, or transform wood into carved treasure, or just enjoy the company and talent of fellow artist, we then encourage you to become a member of the SAA and discover your talent that may lie within.

Do Art in the Middle of the Road

Make your mark in Scituate Harbor this spring. The Town of Scituate has received a 2015 Cultural Council Award for artists to design and install a nautical, coastal-themed mural to be painted on two crosswalks in Scituate Harbor. This pilot program is a joint effort between the Town and Scituate Arts Association and will be a stunning asset to the harbor area this spring and summer. A juried panel will select the winning design and a small stipend will be awarded to the artist. Supplies will be provided by the Town. Look for more details to come soon!

2014 Scituate Arts Association House Tour.. A Great Success

The Scituate Arts Association would like to thank those who participated in & supported our 2014 Holiday House Tour.

It was a great success, raising over $9,000 and involving over 300 guests & volunteers. Thanks to the over fifty advertisers & donors & our four Tour Sponsors who helped underwrite the event costs.

Thanks to the Ledger for its generous coverage, and our volunteers who hosted, staged and hung art. Thanks also to Driftway Jazz. And special thanks to all the Holiday House families who made the Tour possible!

This year, the CPC, MCCFF, & SAA fundraising events raised well over $120,000 which will help fund ongoing restoration of the Ellis House, etc. The SAA will offer more opportunities to celebrate the arts in the coming year. Happy 2015!


With your help, the Ellis Tower has now been repaired and painted.
