The Slidell Art League [SAL], originally named “Lakeside Artist’s League of Slidell”, was formed in 1962 with nine charter members.
The mission of SAL is to create and cultivate the appreciation of art among artists and the community.
SAL is administered by a board of directors who meet monthly. The board is elected by the members annually and serve one to two-year terms.
At the present time, SAL holds three major exhibits annually. These shows attract many artists from all along the Gulf Coast.
Annual shows are held in the fall at the Slidell Public Library, in the Spring at the Slidell Memorial Hospital Cancer Center, and the Artist of the Year exhibit at City Hall.
The Slidell Art League’s biggest goal today is to expand the cultural economy in Slidell so that artists continue to mature in their artistic expression. We also want to enhance community appreciation a knowledge of art.
Slidell Art League’s Monthly Meetings are held at 7pm on the Second TUESDAY of each month.
Location: Christ Episcopal Church, 1534 7th Street, Slidell, 70458.
Artist of the Month submissions must be registered no later than 6:40 pm at the monthly meeting.
The business of the meeting usually lasts for 30 minutes, and a presenter will address the members in attendance for the last 30 minutes. Presenters are invited by the president each month to offer an enlightening view at many forms and techniques of art.
