The Celebration of Fine Art
Scottsdale’s Celebration of Fine Arts lasts for ten weeks, starting January 12, 2019 through March 24, 2019. For over 29 years art lovers have been coming out to the “big white tent” to browse booths filled with original artwork and meet the artists who create them.
Known as the “place where art lovers and artists connect,” this annual event allows you to explore more than 100 actual working artist’s studios. Watch each artist create works of art for display and sale. Artists will demonstrate their techniques for you as they work. Whether you are an art collector or are just thinking about becoming one, this is your chance to visit your favorite artist or meet a new artist and add to your collection. Or if you just love the act of creating, this is your chance to meet and interact with artists while they create their next masterpiece.
