The 2022 FLAIR (Finest Local Artists in Residence) Art Show will be held Thursday through Sunday, March 24-27.

The show is free and open to the public. It is held in the Persimmon Clubhouse inside the Anthem Country Club, located at 2708 W. Anthem Club Drive. The easiest access to the event is through the main gate nearest Gavilan Peak Parkway.

Hours for the event are noon-9 p.m. on Thursday, March 24; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 25-26; and 10 a.m. -2 p.m. on Sunday, March 27.

The FLAIR Art Show features oil paintings, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, pen and ink, stained glass, prints and originals. Subjects include landscapes, wildlife, floral arrangements, portraits, and abstracts. All art works are for sale.

There is also a special section for small works, all selling for $100 or less.

Many works are available on greeting cards as well. Be sure to participate in the raffle of three themed gift baskets as well.
The FLAIR Art Show is comprised primarily of works created by local artists in a weekly painting group in Anthem. Each Monday afternoon from 1-4 p.m., the group of 12 to 20 artists meet in the Anthem Community Center to work on their artistic projects. They note that they are not a class, but instead a group that offers advice, encouragement, critiques, ideas, and general friendship to others with similar interests. In addition to hosting the art show, they organize field trips to artists’ studios as well.
