For more than 85 years, artists of northeast Ohio have gathered to paint, draw and learn as the Akron Society of Artists (ASA). One of Ohio’s oldest and most active art organizations, ASA serves artists of all ages and stages of development – from student to novice to professional.

Through the years, the organization has built a solid reputation as a venue for artistic growth and excellence. Members grow from being part of its artistic community and the variety of arts-related activities it provides.

ASA offers weekly Wednesday evening programming September through May, featuring member critiques, technique demonstrations and art history presentations. On Tuesdays, artists meet to paint landscapes en plein air during the summer and fall months and still life subjects in the studio throughout the winter. On Friday mornings, artists meet in the studio on the third floor of Summit Artspace to work from a live model in life or character poses.

Dedicated to education, ASA offers nationally-acclaimed artist workshops throughout the year and members have the first opportunity to register.

ASA has it’s own gallery space which offers artists the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work via monthly exhibits which are coordinated with other shows in the Summit Artspace building. The group’s studio and gallery is on the third floor of Summit Artspace, 140 E. Market St. in Akron – one block east of the Akron Art Museum.
