CGAA COMMITTEES - Our Focus - Our Passion

Get more involved in CGAA by joining a committee. Meet new people, express your ideas, and help keep CGAA an active, interesting, and informative art association. We are always looking for fresh, new ideas and new energies and we invite you to join one or more committees. 


Committees consist of volunteer CGAA supporters, serving under the guidance of the President of the Board. Coordination of committees are by Vice President of the Board. If you are interested in volunteering to be on a committee, please email us at 




Activities Committee: The focus of the Activities Committee is to plan and develop ideas for activities that benefit and enrich the artists’ experience with art. Whether organizing exciting field trips, planning educational opportunities for adults and children, or engaging interesting speakers for monthly meetings, the Activities Committee puts it all together, ensuring a varied and lively art learning culture for Casa Grande.

Art @ the Airport Committee: The aim of this committee is to plan, develop ideas and facilitate art shows for the art gallery located inside the Casa Grande Municipal Airport. Our goal is to create opportunities for artists to show their artwork and to cultivate artistic experiences that benefit and enrich the lives of those visiting and living in our community. This committee is also responsible for partnering with the City of Casa Grande Municipal Airport in promothing awareness of the airport and their support in the community and the arts. 
  • Theresa Pritchard - Chair



Community Outreach Committee: Because CGAA is committed to making art available to all, it has a dedicated interest in reaching out to the community. This committee is responsible for partnering with other organizations such as the Casa Grande Art Museum, Casa Grande Mainstreet, and the Arts and Humanities Commission to raise funds for programs that bring art to the community. Other commitments include youth mentoring programs to develop learning for young artists and scholarship programs to promote learning about the arts at higher levels.

Holiday ART Market at Museum 

The Casa Grande Art Museum has offered to let CGAA use the Art Museum  between Thanksgiving and Christmas to house an indoor market place. The museum will be open during regular business hours, but instead of an exhibition, there will be artists in booths displaying their work for sale. We are looking for more volunteers who live in CG year round to help organize the event. So far we have: 

  • Sandra Jaech - Chair

Marketing & Social Media Committee: The Marketing Committee concentrates its efforts on promoting the CGAA to the community at large through development of marketing materials.  Whether through photography, proposing designs, getting price quotes, or developing marketing materials such as nametags and business cards, this committee focuses on developing and promoting the ‘face’ of CGAA and art for the benefit of the community.

Museum Coordination Committee: The purpose of the Museum Coordination Committee is to form a strong partnership with the Casa Grande Art Museum with the goal of raising funds to both plan and carry out beautification projects, and assist with other projects the Museum may need help with. The CGAA recognizes the historic relevance of the Casa Grande Art Museum and works hard to nurture the preservation of this piece of Casa Grande’s backstory.
  • Marie Butler - Chair 



Studio Tour Committee: The CGAA is proud to host its own Studio Tour the 1st weekend in March. The Studio Tour Committee works hard planning the event, securing studio sites, organizing additional artist vendors, developing signage and posters, and promoting the event, to name a few of its responsibilities. The committee is always looking for artists to participate in this juried show that showcases the scope of talent to be found in the Casa Grande community. This event remains free to the public.

  • Cindy Patterson & Mark White - Co-Chair



YARTSY "The Artsy Yard Tour" Committee: This committee organizes a garden tour as a fundraiser for CGAA. The tour creatively inspires patrons as they tour six unique and artistic yards. The committee searches for the unique yards, corresponds with homeowners, recruits sponsors and volunteers, and markets the event. The first YARTSY was held in March of 2019 and the proceeds were donated to Casa Grande Art Museum.
