barbara mullenneaux smBarbara MulleneauxThe Grant County Art Guild is pleased to announce the judge for their 33rd annual Purchase Prize Show will be southern Arizona artist and art instructor Barbara Mulleneaux. The Purchase Prize show is open to artists across the state of New Mexico. This is the incentive to secure an out-of-state judge for the show and one that can also lend their talents to leading a 3-day workshop for area artists that are wanting to learn new techniques in painting. Barbara's background was a perfect fit for 2018. 

Barbara moved from southern California to Arizona in 1994. She joined the Tucson Plein Air Painter's Society in 2002. To create rich, bold texture in Barbara's paintings, she prefers to use pallet knives rather than brushes. She says " It is kind of like sculpting with paint." Barbara's paintings are also recognized for bold expressive color. She teaches painting classes and workshops in both plein air and studio disciplines.
Barbara is a member of many different art organizations. Among her accomplishments are Tucson Plein Air Painter Society's President, 2009-2011; Bisbee After 5 Plein Air Festival 2015 First Place; Plein Air Judge, Bisbee After 5 Festival 2016; Toscana Gallery Best in Show 2016; NOAPS International Showcase Finalist 2017; Willcox Fine Art and Photography Show Judge 2018. This year Barbara is also showing in the Phippen Museum and the Western Art Show.
The Pinos Altos Art Gallery at the historic Hearst Church is the location for the September 25th show opening and gala reception. For complete information on the Purchase Prize Show, go to www.gcag.org. Entry forms are due August 2nd. It will be exciting to see which artwork wins the praise of Ms. Mulleneaux and is awarded the "Best of Show" and goes home with the prize $1,500 check. Barbara is excited about judging the artwork in the Guild's 33rd annual Purchase Prize Show, conducting the workshop and exploring the art scene in Silver City.
