Professor of Art Bill Salzillo has been elected to the Society of American Graphic Artists (SAGA). The organization has a rich history. Its origins stretch back to 1915 when a group of printmakers founded the Brooklyn Society of Etchers. The following year, their first exhibit was held at the Brooklyn Museum. In 1952 after several names changes, the society adopted its present title to reflect the all-inclusive membership which practices a full range of printmaking processes.

Mary Cassatt, Joseph Pennell, John Marin, Childe Hassam and John Taylor Arms were early SAGA exhibitors. Over the years the membership has included most of America's foremost printmakers. Membership in the society enables artists to show their work in New York City through important exhibitions with substantial awards.
