Schedule and Themes for 2019:
May : Cityscapes – consider our urban environments: the good, the bad, the ugly; the sweeping sky-line panoramas as well as intimate street scenes.
June: Birds/Waterfowl – Arizona is the second leading state in the number of bird species living or visiting here. Let’s give the avian species its due.
July: Color – last summer it was black and white, this summer let’s go bold with color – big expanses of a single color to dazzle the eye. It’s about color – no large expanses of black or white.
August: Reflections – images of the world as reflected off water or glass – subtle, a little mysterious, even unsettling. Create new worlds for the viewer.
September: Street photography – candid images of chance encounters and random incidents in public places. Framing and timing are key. People may not be viewable but the human presence should be felt.
Fall and Spring Sun City Grand Fairs provide opportunities for members to display many works or a single work in a variety of formats. An artist can request his/her own table or be part of a general display set up. The event coordinator will provide details as these events approach via the club newsletter e-Blast and in written communication available in the studio.
Market Saturdays: Potential opportunities for members to display on individual tables in the general SCG display area or in the Studio if there is expressed interest and members available to accommodate this venue.
When: First Saturdays October – April.
