What's Coming

2015 SANP Salon
The SANP Board has decided that the “special” category for the 2015 salon is “Architecture.” The guidelines for this category are: Any permanent manmade structure or parts thereof.

Review the 2015 Salon Rules; click to obtain the Entry Form. Please read the rules carefully. They are the same as 2014, but please make sure you follow the submission guidelines correctly.

2015 Salon Volunteers Needed

Our annual SANP Salon is scheduled for February 28, 2015. Thankfully, Ed Dumas has agreed to be the Salon chairperson again this year. As usual, we need members to volunteer for various other duties required for the judging and the event itself. The event judging will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at First United Methodist Church of Knoxville on Kingston Pike.

For several years now the same members (for the most part) have been involved with bringing this event to fruition. They have done an excellent job, and there is a good template already in place for the logistics of the process. I would ask each member to consider helping with this event.

If you are willing to help, contact Kendall Chiles at or Ed Dumas at
