  Announcing the 2016-2017 APS Scholarship Winner


Linda Dellandre

"Blue Jay Posing" by Linda Wells

Each artist will begin a painting and paint for 10 minutes. A bell will ring and each painting will be passed to the next artist who will work on it another 10 minutes until the bell rings again. This continues until the artist who started the painting gets it back for a final 10 minutes to add the finishing touches. The 5 resulting masterpieces will be signed by all 5 artists and auctioned off to the highest bidder in support of our scholarship fund. Don't forget to bring your checkbooks! 

Spring is the time to clean out your studio! 

Time to unload all that stuff getting in the way of your creativity. Our Annual Garage Sale is the perfect way to recycle the old easel you replaced last year, the plein air kit you never use, the pastel set you thought you'd love but didn't, brushes and paint you never touch, canvas, pastel board, paper, frames, glass, anything art related. Sell or trade it with other artists at bargain prices.

A garage sale no artist should miss!

Buyers don't forget to bring cash or a checkbook, sellers be sure to have plenty of change on hand.
