TREASURE ISLAND – The Suntan Art Center will open the New Year with a monetary award show, entitled “Saturday Market.” Entries will be judged on how well the piece defines a market’s genre and is open only to members. The gallery will accept entries on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 6 and 7, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. An Artists’ Reception will be on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 5 to 8 p.m., where awards will be presented. The public is invited to meet these award-winning artists.
Suntan is now accepting new members. It is one of the only art centers that allows members exclusive rights to exhibit and sell work in a retail gallery. Exhibitors membership is $36 annually, which allows monthly show changes for artists and fine craftsmen. As an exhibiting member, artists will be able to experience first-hand the running of a retail gallery. Learn what patrons are looking for, how to market and price your work, curate a show, network with other artists and meet new friends. Other memberships also available for arts supporters.
Suntan offers classes for budding artists and is always looking for smiling volunteers. The center is at 137 107th Ave. Call 367-3818.
