“We look forward to sharing Beth’s journey and her works of art, and sharing the impact her art and advocacy of Arizona-based artists has made in the state.”

In recognition of the event’s fifth anniversary, the program will also include the Shemer Art Center’s first four honorees, Angela Tassoni, Jim Waid, Merrill Mahaffey and Bill Nebeker, the release said of the artists who have achieved success in their careers and made a significant impact in the state.
