The Prescott Valley Art Guild is making it easier for working members to meet by creating a monthly Saturday "paint together" gathering beginning Feb. 22 from 1-3 p.m. in Meeting Room #2 at Stepping Stones, 6719 E. 2nd Street.

"You don't have to paint. Bring whatever media you work in or just come and visit the artists, maybe pick up some pointers, or get inspired. Membership is not required and there is no charge," said Sandy Cole, Guild president, adding that there will be a donation jar to offset the cost of the room.

Traditional meetings will continue at 9 a.m. on the second Tuesday of the month, in Meeting Room #1 at Stepping Stones. In addition to business matters, these meetings offer a demonstration by a local artist, competition, raffle drawing, and refreshments. Visitors are welcome.

The Art Guild, formed in 1987, numbers about 38 members from Prescott Valley, Dewey-Humboldt and Chino Valley. Some members also belong to other local art groups such as Mountain Artist Guild or Prescott Art Center, Cole said.

PV Art Guild dues are $30 per year. Members are asked to volunteer for committees such as hospitality and artwork hangers, or for Guild positions such as secretary or treasurer.

Members also help out at town events like the Family Arts Festival, Prescott Valley Days, Fall Arts Festival, and Yavapai Fair art show. They host a summer potluck/picnic and a winter holiday party. They also provide ribbon and prize money for the fair and special shows.

The public can view members' artwork displayed through its Art Around Town program at the Prescott Valley Good Samaritan Village, Windsong Villas apartments, Prickly Pear Café, and two doctors' offices.

They also are the first exhibitors to display their work at the Prescott Valley Public Library, installing nearly 40 pieces this past week.

Cole said some longtime members are retiring from Guild positions due to health issues, or a move out of state.

"It's going to be a different group. We have some new members that have really stepped up," she said.

Members work in pastel, oil, acrylics, watercolors, pencil, charcoal, and include jewelry makers, photographers, and calligraphers.

For more information, call Sandy Cole at 928-632-2918.
