The 2022 AzAA Veterans Art Exhibition features work by US Military Veterans participating in art classes sponsored by the Arizona Art Alliance. One hundred works of art are on display, ranging from paintings, drawings with ink, pencil, ceramics and scratchboard art. Join us on June 11 from 2:00-4:00pm for a reception for the artists with light refreshments and a sound bath experience. This exhibition features work by Veterans participating in art classes sponsored by the Arizona Art Alliance. Classes can be found in Phoenix at Arizona Artists Guild; in Surprise at WHAM (What’s Happening Art Movement), in Cave Creek at the Sonoran Arts League, in Prescott at the Mountain Artists Guild; and in Mesa at the Mesa Artists League.
Included in the show is a selection of ceramic work created by artists in a two-year program in partnership between Arizona Artists Guild and Paradise Valley Community College. Twenty-seven veterans participated in a program to research the benefits of a leisure arts program on veterans’ socialization, mood and cognition. The program was made possible in part to funding by the National Endowment of the Arts. The class was facilitated by Arizona Art Alliance President and Professor of Art, David L. Bradley and PVCC Adjunct Professor of Art, Frank Krevens, PVCC Professor of Psychology, Caron Sada, Lisa Wayman, RNPhD, and Arizona Art Alliance Executive Director, Tess Mosko Scherer.
During the reception on June 11 guests will get to participate in a Sound Bath experience by Steve Hanson of Realign Your Life Wellness Center, Mesa Az. Steve offers free weekly sound bath experience to Veterans. Essentially a Sound Bath is an experience where you are bathed in gentle sound from soothing instruments such as crystal and Tibetan singing bowls. As the sound washes over you the frequencies from the instruments help promote relaxation and restoration within the body, mind, and spirit. During the reception on June 11, Steve will provide several 15-minute mini-sound baths. He knows the benefits of the sound bath and want to share the benefits with Veterans. Contact him through his website to learn more about his sound baths, realignyourlifeaz.com.
The Veterans Art Program and exhibition was made possible through grants from the Arizona Commission of the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts; funding from The Rudolph J. and Daphne A. Munzer Family Foundation and Surplus Line Association of Arizona Foundation and through generous donations from private donors, and in partnership with Paradise Valley Community College.
