I'm a former Arizonan, stranded in San Diego, but returning often to Tucson and also to Cochise County. I am researching the life and art of Arizona Impressionist Effie Anderson Smith (Mrs. A.Y. Smith) and am planning a retrospective exhibit of her finest works to take place in Douglas at the Douglas Art Association's GALLERY during the Centennial month of February 2012. More info at

Re: “Old Pearce Heritage Days

Just one correction on the story above. Effie Anderson Smith was born in 1869 in Arkansas, but moved with her family to New Mexico in 1892, and then to Arizona where she married at Bisbee in 1895. She spend most of her adult life in Pearce (1896-1941), in Douglas (1941-51) and Prescott (1951-55).

If you missed opportunity to see her Impressionist paintings in Pearce over Thanksgiving, be sure to join us for the larger retrospective exhibit of her finest work during the Arizona Centennial celebrations in Douglas - when the Douglas Art Association hosts their centennial exhibit entitled "Effie Anderson Smith: Pioneer Painter", at their Gallery during the entire month of February 2012.
