31 Artists Prepare For Largest Show Of The Year


The creative works of 30 artists will be featured at Payson Art League's (PAL) annual Fall Fine Art and Fine Craft Show and Sale Nov. 3, 4 and 5 in the Tonto Apache Activity Center on Highway 87 at the Mazatzal Casino just south of Payson.

"The show is a gala event for Payson," said artist Peggy Gould.

Artwork will range from two-dimensional (all media of painting) to sculpture, pottery and jewelry.

"We have some of the best talent around compared to other places, even Santa Fe," Gould said. "I have seen art in galleries there and I think our artists are superior."

The show will open from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, with wine and refreshments.

"Friday night's reception is a particularly lighthearted atmosphere," Gould said. "Everyone comes dressed up and it is a time for artists and patrons to mix and mingle and have a good time."

There is a $5 donation for the reception. Weekend hours with free admission are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

The popular juried show is an opportunity for artists to show and sell their work.

A raffle of participants' artwork will be held Sunday afternoon with proceeds going for art materials and education to Rim Country schools.
