West of Center Opening Reception
On the day of transporting all the artwork, WAC volunteers were treated to a beautiful breakfast at
Nana’s by Susan Moehring. The work went quickly, and the results were remarkable.
Wow! This year’s Exhibition is really impressive! The wonderful lighting on the 2-D and 3-D artworks
made everything stand out in all its glory. Best of all, one of the first visitors to the show bought a
painting! Wickenburg Realtor Cindy Logan said one look was all it took, and she immediately bought a
Bonnie Casey painting. So far, there have been TWO sales, and the Exhibition is still very young!
There are 58 2-D paintings in the show, and 14 3-D
entries. This year, our gourd artists, Chickie
Harristhal, Betty Pyeatt and Danielle Selby, outdid
themselves in beautiful works. Arija Powell
contributed two clay statues, Bill Strickler is showing
two of his exquisite carvings, and Don Vance has two
of his wood turnings in the show. Seeing our WAC art
displayed so well is really exciting! And the
Wickenburg Sun sent a reporter to cover the opening
reception, too.
We had lots of visitors who were impressed with the
high level of art our members contributed.
Our WAC member Gleneen Ross did a superior job once again on the food and food tables. Her selection
of china and accessories was as beautiful as the food.
This Saturday, August 1st, Susan Moehring will present our first
Demonstration. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
WAC Member Artist demonstrations will be from 1 – 3 p.m. in the
Cultural Crossroads Learning Center and are free.
With so many talented local artists at the Wickenburg Art Club,

From the Photography Group –
On Saturday, 7/18, members of the
Photography Group performed some
community service work by shooting
publicity photos for the Soroptimist's
Thrift Store here in Wickenburg.
Photos were taken of the building, the
merchandise, the employees, and
volunteers. It was quite fun and the
photographers enjoyed posing the
workers with some of the inventory
and got a chance to find beauty in all
the cool items for
Above – a sample of the photos taken

7/20/15 – from CJ Betancourt –
Good news- Freddie passed his certification test with flying colors
today. We had an employee luncheon afterwards, and they had a
vesting ceremony for him at the restaurant. He is now a certified
service dog- and I am a proud mommy!
