A Couple of Superior Opportunities in September/October!

Hello APAP Painters!

Publicity Gig in Superior, AZ
We will meet on Wednesday, September 26 in Superior at Porter's Cafe'
at 7:30 a.m - 8:30 a.m. and paint the town (literally). Photo op for the group is between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. After that, more painting and optional coffee or early brunch/lunch.
Porter's is on the "main drag" up the hill, and Superior is tiny. You cannot get too lost. Just take US 60 east past Boyce Thompson Arboretum until you see the signs. Bear left (and up) into the business district. Porter's will be on the left 3/4 way down. There is lots of "rustic charm" in Superior. Mountains are in the distance.

Start a painting on Sept. 26th and finish it on Oct. 20th if you like. Tweak it in the studio, if you like. Bring your cameras for reference photos and group shots. Plan to have your work framed and ready on the 20th. People have already been asking if the art will be for sale.

October 20, Saturday APAP paint-out at Superior
Complimentary breakfast is served between 8 and 10 at Porter's Cafe' for APAP member participants. There will be a car show in progress, so bring your cameras if you paint cars and trucks.

We may sell and possibly display our work. Bring a frame with all the fixings and one or two other plein air pieces if you like. We have been exempted from buying a Superior vendor license for this event.

Bring your Arizona Sales Permits with you. Also have cards and brochures. As usual, Toni's trusty Toyota Studio 2 will have a hammer, screw driver, and a loaded point driver on board. Wire and D rings or eye hooks are up to you.

Toni also will have APAP name tags. Put one on your chest, hat, or other g-rated part. Put one on your rig where people can read it. She'll have a stamp that says, "APAP, Arizona Plein Air Painters". We can stamp your boards so that people learn about our group and know you are a member. Please sign in when you arrive so we may include your name in the next newsletter.

Toni says she's planning to leave for Superior at an ungodly hour to be there by 6:30-7:00a.m. on the 20th. (Aagh!)

THIS IS IMPORTANT: You need to r.s.v.p to Toni for the September 26th and for the paint-out on October 20th.  Porters would like to know how many breakfasts to serve on the 20th, and Toni needs to know how many name tags and supplies to bring.

Guest opportunity: Non-APAP members are welcome as guests at this event, and invited to join the club, too!
