It’s the time of year that we are all “abuzz” with excitement! We are just weeks away from welcoming you to the 2011 Celebration of Fine Art. As Ann Morrow wrote recently in her “Art and Adventures” blog. . . “The migration is beginning. Tires on trailers are being checked, paintings are being finished, tools are being gathered, lists are being made. Artists from around the country are getting ready for their journey to Scottsdale, Arizona for the 21st Annual Celebration of Fine Art. They will pack up their easels, sculpture stands, pottery wheels, torches, tools of the trade, art work and, in some cases, families to come to Scottsdale for the Celebration of Fine Art. Many have made the journey for years and others will do it for the first time this year.” And, we will be here to welcome them!
Jake and crew are busy preparing for the arrival of the artists. The tents are up and the interior is being set up for the artists to arrive and build out their temporary studios. The office is humming as we check off all of our lists and get the letters and passes ready to mail to our previous collectors. Deadlines are being met each and every day as we prepare for our best year ever!
The most important thing that completes the “celebration” is YOU, our collectors and guests. We can’t wait to welcome you and share in the latest creations of our talented and thoughtful artists! We know that you have many choices of where to go and how to spend your time. We are always grateful when you make the Celebration your destination!
A bit of good news to share. . . We were honored to be selected as the recipient of the Sterling Award for business excellence by our Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce in November. We were grateful for the opportunity to share the Celebration of Fine Art with our fellow business members in our community. The Chamber of Commerce one of it’s sponsors, SRP, created this lovely video about the Celebration that we hope you’ll enjoy.
We’ll be seeing you soon in the big white tents!
Susan and Jake and the whole Celebration of Fine Art Family
