2017 Events:

Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 | 6 – 10 pm

 

SHEMER HONORS is an annual dinner gala, designed after the Kennedy Honors program, that each year recognizes an Arizona artist who has achieved great success in his or her career and given back to the Arizona community.  This year’s event will honor Arizona artist Jim Waid, and take place again on the lawn at the Shemer Art Center.  The evening will feature an art reception and silent auction, a dinner complete with a video presentation and interview with our honoree!  Interior design firms from across the Valley participate in providing the décor for the tables, and from what we hear, all our guests who attended last year are planning to return!
