Artists’ Breakfast Club, 20 Years

An exhibition of artworks from members of the Valley-based Artists’ Breakfast Club.


  October 5 - December 31, 2020 // Civic Center Public Gallery

Artists’ Breakfast Club, 20 Years celebrates the spirit of community and support among a group of Arizona artists with the club’s 20th year exhibition. Participants are a group of Arizona artists who meet monthly with the intention of artistic cooperation, mutual support, and community.

The Artists’ Breakfast Club was the brainstorm of artist Beth Ames Swartz, who participated in a similar group while living in New York City in the early 1990s. In 2000, Swartz and fellow Phoenix artist Jon Haddock invited about six artist friends to regularly have breakfast and chat together. The group has grown to more than 180 participants who attend monthly events, featuring curators, major artists, museum professionals, writers, and others—all to inspire and support Arizona-based artists.

Exhibition artists: Cherie Buck-Hutchison, Kevin Caron, Christine Cassano, Mary Chuduk, Joel Coplin, Barbara Kemp Cowlin, Diana Creighton, Heidi Dauphin, Jill Friedberg, Jon Haddock, Jerry Jacobson, Christopher Jagmin, Jane Kelsey-Mapel, Art Levy, Jo-Ann Lowney, Emily Matyas, Mary Meyer, John Randall Nelson, Ellen Nemetz, Marnell North, Ann Osgood, Daniel Prendergast, Rembrandt Quiballo, Joe Ray, Sara Reinstein Becker, Patricia Sannit, Melissa Sclafani, Diane Silver, Beth Ames Swartz, Ellen Wagener, and Annie Waters.
