Vanguard Artists, founded in 1977, is a premier group of professional artists who meet at 1:00pm on the first Friday of the Month (except summers) at the Sun City West Foundation in Sun City West, Arizona. Its major focus is to provide a forum for the critiquing of art work produced by each artist. This analysis of painting results in generating better quality work. Vanguard Artists, with its quest for excellence, enriches the community through networking, education and ultimately, finer art.
Many of our Vanguard members are also members of Arizona Artists Guild and we would love to have you see our new meeting, workshop, classroom and exhibition space. Enjoy over fifty beautiful landscapes painted in oil, watercolor and pastel currently being presented. Administrator's note: I have seen both the new building and this exhibition. I highly recommend them both! There are just magnificent works on display here.

Congratulations to Ruth Malins for recently selling a painting at the Professional Building Vanguard display. This is becoming a wonderful opportunity to have our work seen and appreciated, so we all should consider taking advantage of this opportunity.
This painting by Mary Lou Harvey is just one of the delightful paintings brought for critique at yesterday's meeting of Vanguard Artists. Eight new members were announced at the meeting, they will be officially introduced at the January meeting.
