I wanted to extend an invitation for you to join the Gilbert Art Walk starting on September 23, 2011. The Art Walk will be every 4th Friday from 6 to 10 p.m. through May 2012. Go to the Gilbert Art Walk website for information or to sign up. I am also planning an art show at Freestone Park on November 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Go to the Arizona Art Promotions website for more information and to sign up for it.  – George Lenz

Arizona Art Alliance

Open Art Exhibition

This show is open to any artist, 18 years or older, statewide. There is wall space available to display at least 100 pieces of 2D and 3D (hangable) art in the hallways, conference rooms, and entry ways to offices at the AG’s office located in downtown Phoenix. The Arizona Art Alliance is in charge of coordinating this art event.

This is a unique and secure venue to expose your art inventory that has been stacking up with a need for a new, highly secure and non-traditional environment. The art will be primarily viewed by Attorneys, State officials and their clients/visitors. To further promote this exhibition, the Arizona Art Alliance will develop an on-line gallery site so the art can be viewed and purchased by the general public. Chosen art will be hung for 6 months with an option to stay for the next 6 month cycle.

This show is FREE to Arizona Art Alliance juried artists and for a nominal fee for other artists. The deadline is August 19, 2011 to be considered for this first cycle which will run from September 15, 2011 to February 24, 2012. Download the Show Prospectus and Application Form or visit the Events page on our website for the show forms.

    the highlighted links for the AAA show don’t take you anywhere. This show deadline is about to end. Please fix.

      Michelle, the links have been and are all working correctly. Most of them download files (Word docs or PDFs) so check your downloads folder if you’re not getting anything. You may also have to disable pop-up blocker.
