Virtual General Meeting, November 9, 2020

President Kay hosted our November 6th General Zoom meeting and introduced Andy Evansen, our January Premier Workshop instructor. Andy gave us a clever presentation "talking over" a previous recording he had done.  This allowed him to fast forward through the drying periods.  Enjoy the show and sign up for one or both of his 2-day workshops in January.

The SAWG Collection


In a climate-controlled storage unit here in Tucson, there are nearly forty very special paintings that rarely get to see the light of day.

Over the years, our founding members and Premier Workshop instructors have donated paintings to SAWG.  On occasion, a few have been displayed in the gallery on a rotating basis.  We are pleased to tell you that now, for the first time, you are able to view the entire collection on this six-minute video.

We hope you enjoy it!
