Calendar History

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.
