About SAA Collective:
The Springfield Art Association is committed to fostering community awareness and participation in the visual arts
The SAA Collective is a professional exhibition gallery located in the H. D. Smith Gallery in the Hoogland Center for the Arts. Today, The Collective gallery is a division of the Springfield Art Association, and represents artists from Springfield and central Illinois. The roots of this group of artists began 40 years ago as the Women's Art Alliance; with the addition of male artists, it became the Prairie Art Alliance in 1995; and in 2016 with the merger with Springfield Art Association, became the SAA Collective.
