Who We Are - American Society of Artists is a National Professional Membership Organization.
The American Artisans (Crafts Division) is an integral part of American Society of Artists. The Special Arts Services Division was originally formed as a separate division to encourage involvement for artists with disabilities . However, it was quickly determined it was best to incorporate it into American Society of Artists as a whole with our Special Arts Services Director overseeing the fact that we retain a unique awareness in this area. .
ASA also provides other services for its members including a number of art shows, art and craft shows and has done so for 45 years presenting shows throughout Illinois and other states throughout the Midwest and beyond including many in St. Louis MO and its suburban area plus over 200 shows in the North Michigan Avenue/ Downtown area of Chicago as well as a great many additional shows throughout Chicago  and the Chicago suburban area as well as throughout Illinois.  Shows & other functions of the Society are overseen by our Area Representatives and Show Officials, themselves talented artists & craftsartists. Each event is juried and open to qualified non-members as well as members. Qualified members & others assist greatly with each event serving as Show Officials and helping with oher aspects of shows. 
American Society of Artists has been in existence for 45 years & changes to suit the needs of its membership. We have, at various times, had a gallery on N. Michigan Ave and a showroom in the Merchandise Mart where members exhibited & sold their work.
