Members' Exhibition 2022

Isn't it wonderful to have our Members' Exhibition back this year? It's been two years since we had this particular exhibition, which is sometimes referred to as the "All Member's Show" as all art entries submitted are hung, then judged. (We do have another exhibition coming up the end of 2022 which will be our Members' Juried Exhibition, where entries are juried into the exhibition and then judged for awards.)

The Members' Exhibition 2022 is currently on display for the month of March at Canoa Hills Recreation Center in the main lobby and hall galleries.

Many thanks to our co-chairs, Nan Lux and Bonnie Nelson, and volunteer crew, for their efforts in putting this show together in a short period of time. There are many moving parts to these exhibitions. Their efforts are appreciated by our entire membership, especially those that entered and those who were able to attend the reception on March 2nd.

Judging of awards was done by Tubac artist, David Simons. Thank you to David. We can guess his job wasn't easy with over 100 pieces of art submitted.

Following is a list of the award winners in the Abstract and Representational categories. Images of the award winners follow the list. You really need to head on over to Canoa Hills and see the art in person. (Notes - Apologies for the reflections on the artwork with glass. Every attempt was made to not clearly show personal emails or phone numbers since this is our public website - which is why some are cropped a bit.)
