Wow! This has been a busy week as plans come together for the Desert Artist Guild’s 4th annual juried show and sale at the Plaza Gallery.
Monday and Tuesday volunteers handled the intake as artists brought their work in to be juried.
Wednesday the juror arrived from Tucson. Betina Fink is a visual artist with a MFA degree in Painting from the University of Arizona, and a BA in Fine Art/Art History from the University of Delaware. She is also Youth Program Director with The Drawing Studio in Tucson.
After the judging, the show committee worked on the display space, setting up and painting additional walls and pedestals, getting labels printed and finalizing the last details.
Thursday two more volunteer teams arrived — one to lay out the work and one to hang it. This went smoothly and by early afternoon almost everything was done.
So we’re almost done!
Hope you can attend the Opening Reception Friday January 11 from 5 to 7 pm. Join us for refreshments, meet the artists and enjoy some of the best work that the Desert Artist Guild has to offer.
