The SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild operates four venues within our community where members' work can be viewed and appreciated by our fellow residents in SaddleBrooke. Each of these galleries has their own criteria for types of work displayed. The art work is changed every quarter throughout the year.
Javelina Room / Road Runner Grill (HOA#1) 15 - 20 pieces
This gallery has no selection process. Those who wish to display their work only need bring their art, one or two items, to the fHOA#1 Club House, Javelina Room, on the third Saturday every two months. It will be hung based on space available, May, July, September, and so on. A Business card or a display tag may be placed on the work giving the artist's contact information.
Activity Center (HOA#1) 7-10 pieces
The work displayed in this venue is selected by a Fine Arts Guild committee on the first Saturday of the designated dates (see below) with a theme in mind. The pieces are chosen based on photographs submitted by the artists to the Guild’s photo archive. The Guild will prepare a display label for each item selected, no other tags or cards are allowed. Selected artists will be notified by email. The Activity Center hanging will be held at 9:00 am on the second Saturday of the selection month.

Mariposa Room at Desert View (HOA#2) 15-20 pieces
A Fine Arts Guild committee selects the work displayed at this location from the Guild’s photo archive library with no theme in mind, based on the quality of the work and its relationship to other items selected. No price tags or business cards are allowed, each work of art is identified by a label stating the title, size, medium, and the artist’s name and phone number. This display is changed quarterly. Guild members whose work has been selected to hang are notified by email. The Mariposa Room hanging will be held at 2:30 pm on the second Saturday of the selection month. All Guild members are notified by email if there are any changes to the schedule.
Annex Office Lobby (HOA#2) 5-7 pieces
The Guild selects an outstanding artist to present their work at this location as a one person show, selecting and hanging work they feel will be appropriate in this venue. The Guild has the right to reject any work they feel is not appropriate or up to HOA#2 required quality standards. No labels or cards are allowed to be placed on the art work. A resume and/or business cards will be kept at the receptionist’s desk. The featured artist will be notified by e-mail. The artist should visit the office lobby before the hanging date and determine what work they wish to display in the space available. An appointment time for hanging will be arranged with the Gallery Committee.
