August 2017 News

Here we are kicking off our new season with the magnificent 2017 Fall Exhibition running from September 16th through October 14th at the Scottsdale Artists’ School. We had a wonderful field of entries from our membership that I’m sure gave our esteemed juror, Anne Abgott, some hard choices as she selected the show. Thanks to all who sent entries and remember, if you didn’t make it into this show you can enter your work again as long as it was completed within three years of the exhibition date, and a special congratulations to all first-time exhibitors!
Please make every effort to take in this beautiful exhibition by visiting the SAS located at 3720 North Marshall Way in Scottsdale. Hours are Monday –Friday, 8:30-5 pm and Saturday, 8:30- noon and 1-4 pm.
Because Ms. Abgott will be with us during the final week of our exhibition giving her workshops, we will be adding our artist awards reception to our regular monthly meeting on October 12th. You will be able to see the award winning paintings and hear from Anne herself as she explains the reasons they were selected from the field to receive these awards. Anne will be giving a demo that night too, so be sure to add this date to your calendar, so you won’t miss out on a unique evening of fun and art. Your fellow artists receiving awards that night will appreciate your support too. And if that weren’t enough, there will be lots of yummy treats available for the celebration. See you all there!
