During this FREE SELF-GUIDED TOUR, Sonoran Arts League artists open their private art studios. Observe artists at work and gain insight into their materials and technique. See paintings, sculpture, jewelry and every art form in between, in a variety of styles and mediums. And purchase original works of art directly from nationally recognized artists and emerging new artists.

7:00 pm General Meeting Info & Guest Speaker

Guest speaker on February 8th is Mckenna Hallett who will share some of the key parts from her seminar, "The E’s of Selling”. Highly inspiring, she enhances and increases sales success by teaching the principles of “Purposeful Selling” and “Intentional Sharing" based on our natural instincts. As Mckenna says, "When Artists recognize their life-long impact as creators of art, there is a significant shift in energy. We are all perfect “salespeople" when we are sharing our favorite restaurant or book. I connect that spirit to sharing and “selling” art." 


"With love, all things are possible. Loving one’s art and loving knowing it’s in homes creating joy every day is at the core of the E’s of Selling System. Closing more sales becomes almost incidental.”
