Arizona Arts Alliance
The Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit art organization comprised of over 4,000 artists from 34 Arizona-based art groups. Founded by local artists in 2000, the Arizona Art Alliance is committed to the promotion and appreciation of fine art and the enrichment that art brings to the community.
The Alliance conducts charitable art education and art mentoring programs that benefit the lives of disadvantaged and disabled youth as well as seniors at risk. The proceeds from art sales, donations, and grants helps to make such life-enriching community outreach programs possible.
In June of 2014 our membership voted to continue out relationship with the Arizona Art Alliance.
At the current time, the Alliance itself has had to go through some changes and a move.
Their new address is:
2721 W. Southern Ave, Tempe 85258.
This association offers our members several benefits:
- The opportunity to show your work in the Spring and Holiday Fine Art Member Group Exhibitions.
- An annual ADC 10 day exhibition. Dates are drawn by lottery annually and include all member groups. (We are awaiting the relocation before dates can be scheduled.)
- Rental classrooms at the gallery.
Classroom Size: 2 classrooms are available for rental. Class Rooms A & B can comfortably accommodate 10 to 12 students. Classroom A can be scheduled for conferences and presentations of up to 24 people around a table or 40 set up as an audience.
Rates: Rental rate are $50.00 per 1/2 day. The hours from 8:00 AM till 12:30 PM and from 1:00 PM until 7:00PM. Conference Room rental is $25.00 per 1/2 day. Purchase a link to your own web site, from the Arizona Art Alliance web site. ($25/year)
Participation in AAA events other than the Spring and Holiday Fine Art Member Group Exhibitions does require members to be juried into their organization. The process is easy, economical and once the artist is accepted, they will retain the juried status as long as the artist maintains his/her membership with ADC.
- Tent & display panel rentals at half price.
The next AAA jury deadline (postmarked) is September 30. The application form and details for submitting your application for juried status is posted on the AAA web site, along with suggestions from the jury chairperson, on how to make your application a success. You are encouraged to get your application in early, to be able to correct any errors made in the application, such as forgetting to include you check, or using incorrect file formats of the digital images.
