Artists of the Superstitions is a local Gold Canyon Arizona area non-profit organization that was originally formed in March of 2007 as the Gold Canyon Artists Group, a group of artists living and working in the Gold Canyon and Apache Junction areas of Arizona.
From its small beginning of about 10 members, artists were drawn to the group and now number more than 35+ artists.
They are a diverse group representing an interesting array of art mediums. The membership produces and presents work in watercolor, acrylic and oil painting, photography, wood turning, pottery, jewelry, three dimensional art (including gourds and masks), and much more.
Inspired by the Superstition Mountains, the imposing landmark that is part of the daily lives of those who live in the area, the group changed the name from the Gold Canyon Artists Group to Artists of the Superstitions in January of 2008.
In December 2010, the organization was accepted into the Arizona Art Alliance, a consortium of Art Groups in the greater Phoenix area. The members will now be allowed to exhibit at more venues across the valley.
There are several exhibits throughout the year. Visit their website for more details about the group, membership info and updated info about their exhibits.
