Take the Survey!
February is coming to a close and we hope that we find you all well and looking forward to some of the exciting plans the Dry Canyon Arts Association have in the works. We have had to change the date for our first event this year due to the uncertainty of COVID restrictions. Our hope is that we will be in a better place for this event a little later in the year. So please change your calendars to move the May 5th show to June 5th. Our board is doing their best to plan a successful event and would like your feedback.

May 5th, Saturday Art Market at the High Desert Music Hall has been re-scheduled for June 5th
"Free Little Art Gallery" project was presented by Kimberly Krueger and discussed. An artist in Seattle has started a "Free Little Art Gallery" modeled after the "Free Little LIbrary" project. The idea is to give artists a place to 'show' their work in a gallery setting (but in minature). The thought was to solicit some of our woodworking members to construct the galleries, choose a few neighborhoods in Redmond and strategicly place them for our membership and our neighboors to populate and share our work. Read the news article about Stacey Milraney and her "Free Little Art Gallery" project in Seattle. CNN Article. Idea will be presented to the membership for further discussion.
