Artist(s)* of The Month

October, 2016

Sam Whitman               Beth Anne Whiting    Nancy Donavan

* A 3-way tie!

Guidelines for Artist of The Month:

This event is held monthly, August to April, and open to all members of the Guild.  Artists are limited to one framed work each month.  

Artists awarded Artists of the Month are not eligible for further monthly competition.  All Artists of the Month are automatically entered in the Artist of the Year Event, held in May.

Artist of the Year will then be chosen from those qualifying artists.

(If you have sold the awarded work you may substitute another work for the May event.)








Our  PAG Spring Exhibit is to be held in Nelson Hall on the campus of the Church of the Beatitudes April 28 - May 1. The organizers, along with many members of the PAG work hard to make this event a successful extravaganza so that over 100 pieces of Fine Art, and several tables of smaller gift pieces might be displayed and offered for sale.

As is the custom, the Fine Art will be judged in six categories, and ribbons awarded for first, second and third places for each category. Additionally, a special award is presented for the best water color art piece.

The artists reception will be on Friday evening, April 29th, open to the public, and  promising to be well attended, as publicity was heightened this year with emails, newspaper notices, flyers, and word of mouth invitations.  Members of PAG provide finger food to help pass the evening enjoyably. Special kudos go to Carmen Timm, Exhibit Manager; Victoria Lansing, Gift Table organizer, and Sheila Bellinger, Hospitality Director.

Since the closing of the gallery in 2014, the Arizona Art Alliance has focused on establishing relationships with other galleries around the greater Phoenix area to bring exhibit opportunities to member organizations from a variety of locations. Annual exhibits currently are planned at: HOLLAND GALLERY (October 2016) 34250N.60th St., Scottsdale,AZ 85266 WHAM GALLERY (March 2017) 16560 N. Dysart Rd., Surprise AZ 85378 VISION GALLERY/Chandler Center for the Arts (July/August 2016)10 E.Chicago ST./250 N. Arizona Ave. Chandler, AZ 85225.

Other private art galleries are being sought to increase Alliance-sponsored exhibits.

Additional current offerings include the ongoing ON-LINE GALLERY, an "on-line only" show ("Beat the Heat"), both on the Alliance website, and availability for individual artists to show for a month on the Alliance Newsletter and more (see later in this article for application directions). Specific application information for the 'Beat the Heat" and VISION gallery show are available in the March 2016 Newsletter.

Regarding the free availability of individual artists showing in the Alliance Newsletter, Newsletter Editor, Kathy Koneski, has provided the following for entering: a good artist biography, about 4 to 6 JPEG images of their artwork with their name, PAG membership, artwork titles, medium used, and (optional) an okay to the Alliance to use their pictures in other types of advertising for the Alliance; finally, email all the materials to Kathy at, or joekathy@century Note that there is no charge for this.






Remember; you can post a link on the website, (and to your website, if you have one); show an example of your work; and provide your contact information on the Links page, for just $25,  annually!  See details and how easy it is, on the Links Page.
