Thank you for your interest in the "Artist of the Month" exhibit. Each month, the gallery area to the side of the main part of Phoenix Art Supplies & Framing, which we have dubbed "The Little Gallery", will feature a new local artist. In the gallery, a chosen artist's work will hang for exhibit. There may be up to 20 pieces of original, hanging artwork and a flip-through stand of up to another 20 “portfolio” pieces; such as works on paper or prints. All artwork will must be available for purchase.
To celebrate the artist's work, each Artist of the Month will have a reception on a Friday night early in the month of their exhibit. The reception will include a meet-and-greet with the artist, good conversation with other art appreciators, and light refreshments.
