Back in November we had our first meeting of "Story Book Artists", attended mostly by friends and fellow artists from our local historic neighborhoods. Now we have teamed up with Willo North Gallery and Kristin Shears, and have decided to expand the group and open it up to the downtown Phoenix community. We changed the name to Urban Artists Collective (uac) and created a blog and will complete a web site soon as well.
Through a series of workshops and presentations exploring a variety of media and ideas we hope, uac will bring a fresh, interactive experience to our community of established and emerging artists.
Our first event will be on February 20 and is called Express Yourself: The Art of Collage.
