The Monthly Members' Art Exchange

Bird of Paradise

Each month, Suntan Art Center sponsors a Members' Show, and each month's show is based on a different theme. Prize ribbons will be awarded by a group of judges and representation of the stated theme is a factor in the judging.

Ribbons will be presented each month at the opening reception. Members not wishing to participate in the theme may still submit work for that month.

There will be an opening reception on the second Saturday of each month from 4 to 6 PM.

If you are participating and wish to hang or pick up your entry, please follow these helpful guidelines. Art is to be picked-up and new work delivered on:
First Saturdays of the month from 10 am until 1pm SHARP
Fridays before the first Sat. from 10 am until 4pm unless otherwise stated
