blue_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 Saturday of the month from 10 am until 1pm SHARP
  • Friday before the first Saturday of the month from 10am - 4pm unless otherwise stated
