Vista Fine Arts invites you…

Donna Langwig

Vista Fine Arts invites you to participate in a unique and exciting event on Sunday, November 15 when we present Guy Atchley’s Arizona. As many of you know, Guy is Tucson’s award winning journalist, celebrating 31 years as anchor at KGUN 9 News On Your Side. He will share years of fascinating stories, quips and photos in his own humorous, engaging style. Guy’s presentation will begin at 3:00 p.m.

Add to the excitement of the day and come early to enjoy our Vista Artists Showcase featuring the works of some of Vista’s finest artists including painters, potters and photographers. The show will open at 1:30 p.m. in Ed’s Building on the Vista campus, close at 2:45 p.m. for everyone to attend Guy Atchley’s Arizona, and then re-open until 5:00 p.m. Some of the artwork will be for sale.

Meet and chat with the artists and perhaps find that perfect holiday gift.

Guy Atchley has become one of Tucson’s premier photographers with over 40 years in television journalism. As winner of several awards for excellence in broadcasting, he was inducted into the Arizona Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame along with people like Steve Allen, Rex Allen, Waylon Jennings and Joe Garagiola. Guy spent each Labor Day as Tucson host for the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon and counts the comedian as a good friend and mentor. Lewis writes: “Guy Atchley’s ‘good news’ stories reflect devotion to his community and to the human community, making him a great newsman and a close ally of mine.” Guy always seeks out stories of inspiration and humor—the small, quiet stories behind the lives of real and honorable people. Basketball Coach Lute Olson says: “I applaud Guy Atchley for focusing on what is good in our world.” And author Amy Weintraub says of Guy: “Journalistic integrity, insight and compassion underlie the heartwarming journey of his life.” On November 15, you will have an opportunity to meet and visit with Guy and to enjoy his amazing photography. He will also be displaying several of his beautiful, artful images.

This celebration of visual art promises to be one of the highlights of the year for Vista Fine Arts. Admission is free. An offering will be taken. All are welcome, so invite your friends to join you for this exciting opportunity. Vista de la Montaña United Methodist Church is located at 3001 Miravista Lane in Catalina (west side of Oracle Road, 3.7 miles north of Tangerine). For questions and information call 825-1985 or visit
