This month, I have 12 pieces in the 1st annual “Home for the Holidays” invitational show at the Shemer Art Center and Museum, located at 5005 E. Camelback Rd. in Phoenix. The show features work from selected Arizona artists and runs from December 2 to 31, with an opening party Thursday, December 1, at which I will be one of the artists in attendance.
Here’s what the Shemer says:
If you are looking for unique, one of a kind, hand-crafted gifts to send to your family and special friends this holiday season look no more! The Shemer Art Center presents its 1st Annual Invitational Home For The Holidays Show & Sale, December 2–31, 2011.
The exhibit features high-quality work from 35 talented Arizona artists working in metal, clay, glass, beadwork, wood, paper, textiles, print and other diverse disciplines that will be for sale during the month of December.
AND … if you would like to be one of the first 100 VIPs (Very Interested Patrons) to get a sneak preview (1st chance to buy), a Holiday Party is scheduled for Thursday evening, December 1, 2011, from 6 to 9 p.m. Artists will be in attendance!
