TENT EVENT: Sat., 27 April 2013

Art Stand Friends,

there's a lot of excitement at the end of this month. We are preparing for a big day: our TENT EVENT, which coincides with the April Sanger Art Hop. Those who have followed us for a few years know that the Tent Event means we invite non-members to show at our gallery and we do demos as well. En plen air is the mode, and yours truly will demo on the potter's wheel.

So if you're an artist who'd like to set up your own booth, we encourage you to participate in this event. The fee is $35 per booth per person. If you'd like to share a booth with another artist, the second artist pays an additional $5. We don't take commission for this opportunity. You are responsible for your own set up, and it's on a first come first serve basis. The event opens at 10 a.m., so we'd like you to have finished your set up by 9:45 and clear the parking lot. Some visitors come early because Sanger Art Hop is getting more publicity and people start early. The gallery hours end at 5pm, although Art Hop is until 4pm.

Member Martin Nunez set up a small exhibit outside.

If you are or you know others who are interested, the contact number is (559) 281-9268 or 559-787-3921. Hope you can join us.

Always "mud"-dled,

Kathleen's Painting

Former ASG member Kathleen Mattox, who now hails from her own Mixed Messages Gallery in downtown Sanger, painted this whimsical piece of our beloved gallery. Thank you, Kathleen, for such a delightful painting, complete with our neighbor's super tall palm tree in the back!

If you click on her link here, you'll see her newest series of paintings. Visit her at her charming "cottage" in downtown Sanger, 1310 8th Street. Call 559-905-3517 or email her at for more info.
