Welcome!

Art Explorers AZ offers exceptional experiences for those who want to be part of a community of like-minded, discriminating, adventurous artists and art enthusiasts who seek something remarkable in the art and cultural world.

We are an active and specialized group for Artists & Art Appreciators, and those interested in Art and Culture. You do not have to be an artist to join us, so no artistic talent is needed, simply a desire for more remarkable experiences, and even to learn at varied venues around the valley the state, and now internationally.

Come socialize with like-minded friendly members at artist receptions, gallery openings, museum docent tours, art lectures, plays, art films, intimate concerts, private art gatherings, special art venues, historical homes and architectural masterpieces, and anything we deem “artsy” or “cultural” while creating lifetime memories.

Are you an artist, or wanting to become a practicing artist? Art Explorers AZ is a member of the Arizona Art Alliance that provides opportunities to exhibit in art shows, in addition to our own juried art show “Art for HIV” benefiting the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS in Phoenix. Never entered a juried art show? Perfect!  We have mini-classes to help you navigate this important process. Exhibiting in our art show helps you gain valuable experience for applying to other art shows.

We have a very friendly group of responsible members who are single or married, age 21-99, from all corners of the Metro-Phoenix area, and beyond, who delight in meeting new people and finding camaraderie in our gatherings, who are looking to network and collaborate with other artists, art collectors, and art appreciators, or to simply discuss art techniques, philosophy, marketing, et al, with someone of like mind. The experiences in this group exceed the mundane for those desiring more noteworthy encounters.
