Daniel Valladee, Recreation Leader with the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, is coordinating a community based art show event in the West Valley. The event is titled, “Conversation Pieces II” and will be hosted at Maryvale Community Center on November 15th, 2014 from 1pm to 5pm. From Daniel: "We are welcoming all art vendors from the community to participate in the event. All art mediums are appreciated, ranging from woodwork and photography to paint and graphic designing. In addition, there will be hands-on art workshops for youth, a tablet giveaway, local artists, and local high school artwork displays. There is NO fee for vendors to participate; it is free of charge. However, each participating art vendor is required to possess a city tax license (more information on this can be found HERE). Vendors have the ability to market and sell their products on-site. Currently, only 20 vendors will be accepted for the event and will be accepted on a “first come, first serve” basis. If you know any artists who would be interested, please forward this information to them.
"We are very excited in getting the event up and going and even more excited in exposing the Maryvale community to the arts. If interested, please feel free to contact me through the information provided below at your earliest convenience to ensure we reserve the space needed."
