Arizona Fine Art Expo Opens January 11

Step into the creative confines of Thunderbird Artists’ Third Annual Arizona Fine Art EXPO and you’ll immediately sense an exquisite exhibition like none other.  A picturesque backdrop, enhanced by stunning desert vistas and mountain views, highlight a scenic setting matched only by the original creations on display from 115 world-class artists.

The 10-week event, set to begin on January 11th, 2007, will take place on the southeast corner of Scottsdale and Pinnacle Peak Roads in Scottsdale. 

This unique event will showcase juried artists applying their skills in a working studio environment, giving patrons unprecedented access to some of the world’s most gifted painters, sketch artists, welders, sculptors, glass blowers and more.  Not only will you have the opportunity to interact with the artist, but participation will be encouraged during hands-on art demonstrations and workshops.

Complementing the creativity on display will be an extraordinary offering of fine foods offered by Chompie’s New York Style Deli.   While roaming the sculpture garden, you’ll have a chance to dine alongside a life-sized bronze, sip cappuccino among working artists sculpting clay or relax inside the Café de EXPO.  You can even observe skillful glass blowers as they shape a glowing bowl or vase out of a simple gather of glass.  All the while, relaxing music will resonate throughout the venue, creating an ideal ambiance for fine art viewing.

Special events planned for this year’s event include Paul Zimmer flutist and song writer, Brule’, Brian Hammil Native American Hoop Dancer, Cactus Market every Saturday, Chef Art from Chompie’s with chocolates for Valentine’s Day, Mexican Folkloric Dancers, workshops, glass blowing classes and more.  If you want a meeting place for a group of people, specialty luncheons or club meetings, the Arizona Fine Art EXPO is the place to go.  Art on display is for sale or may be commissioned by the patrons, designers, corporate collectors, landscape designers and art collectors.
