Joint APAP/TPAPS Paint Out & Show for 2013

Pack your paints! For Tucson Plein Air Painters Society & Arizona Plein Air Painters members only: an exciting FIRST MUTUAL BIG EVENT designed to promote all of us, plein air, the arts, membership, and sales is in the making!

Save the dates: On Feb 9, 2013, there will be a mutual, free all day paint-out at the beautiful White Stallion Ranch (see site link below) in Marana, AZ. For out-of-towners who wish to stay overnight on Feb. 8, the first class double deluxe rooms have been graciously offered by White Stallion Ranch Resort at a special B&B rate of $180 plus tax. They must be reserved by this Dec 15th. After that, it is at availability only. Alternative local accommodations: Days Inn & Suites: 888.614.1750 & Comfort Inn: 520.579.1099.

Those wishing to host out-of-towners, please e-mail me at . Friends and family are welcome to watch. Participants must be TPAPS and or APAP members, and are required to sign in early morning at the paint-out with a maximum of three canvases stamped and dated. Juried submissions to the show will be from these only. Touch-ups may be completed in your studio.

Shemer Art Center - Scottsdale AZ
Next, a well-publicized Mutual Show/Reception will follow from this event on Oct 26, 2013, at noon at Shemer Art Center/Museum in Scottsdale (see site link below). Participating artists are invited to paint at the art center the morning of the reception to promote public interest. The center will receive 25% commission on any show sales and any "wet paint" sales completed from painting on the site the morning of the reception. (For those interested, membership to the center is also available).
The art center is in a prime location. They have graciously offered to host, jury, publicize, and hang the work for approximately one month at no cost. Director Jocelyn Hanson will provide the "outside" juror.

Committees from both organizations will be set up, so that with everyone's help, we can get this historic feat accomplished.

More information/details re: show submissions/prospectus for jurying, receiving, shipping, etc., will follow when we have that information for you.
Your fellow artist, Geri Acosta
