Let’s Hang Together – An Art Show With a Twist.

The Parker Artists Guild is hosting its 3rd Annual “Let’s Hang Together Art Show” at the Parker Public Library from July 1 through July 31, 2014.  

To be able to enter the show, Parker Artists Guild members must mentor a young person of their choice (under 18 years) helping them to conceive, design, create and present a work of art.  Both the PAG member’s and the young artist’s art will be “hung” together for the duration of the show.   The Guild also encourages each young person to try to sell their art to add to the experience.   

What is mentoring?... “Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psycho-social support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé)  Mentoring in Europe has existed since at least Ancient Greek times. Since the 1970s it has spread in the United States of America mainly in training contexts”


The show will be judged by noted Colorado artist Diane Rapasisi.  In addition to awarding prizes to the participating PAG artists, Ms. Rapasisi will be providing personal feedback to each young mentee concerning their artistic creations. 

The public is invited to attend a reception for the Artists and their young mentees, Thursday evening, July 31, from 6PM – 8PM at the Parker Public Library.
