February 15 --  McDowell Sonoran Preserve (Gateway Trailhead)   Toni Perrin, host
18333 E. Thompson Peak Parkway,  Scottsdale AZ
From the west or the south:
•  Gateway Trailhead, 18333 E. Thompson Peak Parkway is one half mile north of the intersection of Bell Rd. and Thompson Peak Pkwy.
•  Go north on Thompson Peak Pkwy. to Gateway (east side of the street).
From the north:
•  Come to the intersection of Legacy and Pima.
•  Go east on Legacy to Thompson Peak Pkwy.
•  South (right) on Thompson Peak Pkwy. to the site.

Please check in with Toni at the Preserve beginning at 8:30 am.  She will be teaching a class, but you will not disturb her.  Just interrupt and sign in.  She will be taking photos for the Preserve's web site.

Plan to paint/demo from 9 am until noon.  If you finish early, you need not stay the duration.  Bring cards, brochures, and some paper for adding new customer e-mails with you.  Although we may not sell our work on the premises, we can establish a wider presence for APAP, Sonoran Arts League, and ourselves as individuals.   This is a very popular place (often crowds) and the trails are easy.

Congratulations to APAP artists Cindy Rosen and Matt Sterbenz who took Best of Show and Second Place respectively in last weekend’s Plein Air Event in Glendale’s annual A Chocolate Affaire!  Here are their winning plein air works:
