What began as a small group of artist with a desire to learn and perfect their paintings skills, has grown into an annual art show that will feature 14 artists and present over 100 of their original paintings.
Artist Virginia Howell, a member of The Alazan Artist of El Paso says the group has been together since 2007 as a result of a workshop with art instructor Nina Walker. “We are a very cohesive groups that paints Impressionist pieces. Since we have worked together for so many years, I feel we have continually improved,” said Howell.
The Alazan Artist of El Paso will exhibit their 5th Annual Desert Lights Art Show & Sale this Sunday, December 8th at 150 Sunset. Howell said the event is free and there will feature artwork from local artists along with a silent auction with drinks and hor d’oeuvers from 3:00 – 7:00 pm
Howell says that one of the biggest thrills of the event is when you sell a piece. “When I sell to someone I don’t know-I think that’s a wonderful thing to happen. There is not a sense of obligation. They bought my art because they really liked it, not because they know me,” said Howell.
