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!



And the winners are!


Watch our Virtual Awards Presentation for this beautiful All Members’ Show, judged by Diana Madaras.   Diana has wonderful things to say about the winners and their paintings.
