Fall Interships Still Available!

We are currently looking for interns to supplement our small staff during the coming fall.    Responsibilities    for   interns  would i nclude  website, marketing,  community outreach  program development and fundraising within the community. this year  we  will  also be  accepting  applications  for  Curator   and   Landscape Arcquitect . Unlike other internships, successful candidates should not expect to languish away in mail or  copy   rooms, nor   will   they  spend  their  whole  days answering   letters  or   phones.  Extensive   experience  with programming is not required but a familiarity with computers and the internet is a neccessity. If you're afraid of the computer, this is probably not the place for you.  ArtFare.org cannot offer financial compensation to interns, but  does offer a positive work environment that is unlike anything one may ever experience. Hours are  extremely  flexible as our offices,website are open seven  days a week, thus  allowing   students to work around their busy schedules. Most importantly, we offer our interns the opportunity to work in an office that is in the thick of things, or from  a  remote   site   not  only supplying website  support  to  creative   members  and   organizations,  but  often making news. If you are interested in applying for an intern position at ArtFare.org please   send  a  resume  and  cover  letter  to : E-mail:  internship@artfare.org

Marti  White took a break from the refurbishing project at The Muse Community Arts Center Her studio is housed there in the Historical "Old YMCA".Located on what the  City calls the Fringe of  Tucson's Art's District just behind the  4th Avenue Dairy Queen. She spoke with us about her philosophy on art and life. Painting on the third floor of the 1940's  building adding the Mango Stain to the Hallways. The hallsways that once invited visitors to the dormitories now welcome artist and visitors to the top floor artist's studios.
"My focus is to get what is within my unconscious mind onto the painting which is a much more spiritual direction than in the past. Some of my work is quite abstract, but not all of it. I have enjoyed taking works of art by masters of the past and weaving their images into works of my own. I also enjoy beginning with no plan and seeing where the media will take me. I feel these works express what is within me more than the planned pieces. There is no end to the possibilities in working with several mediums on one piece and having the option of adding collage elements expands the creative process even further. I feel that an artist's work is always evolving and changing and this new avenue of expression is an example of that evolution in both my art and my personal life.."                                                                                                                                     Experience: Painted in watercolor for over 20 years winning several local competitions and two one-woman shows in Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnosotta area.
Have shown at the Hausman Gallery at The Audubon Society and at the Nortena Festival
in 2002. Presently Marti is ArtFare.org's featured artist in the Virtual Gallery  she is also showing at Otero Gallery in Tubac, AZ.
