Arizona’s longest-running art show, the Celebration of Fine Art, will return to Scottsdale on Saturday, January 18 for its 30th year with 100 acclaimed and emerging artists from throughout the country. Renowned as the West’s premier art show and working studio, this 10-week-long, world-class event will be open daily through Sunday, March 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Celebration of Fine Art is a juried, invitational show that has come to be recognized for its diverse array of exceptional art, but more importantly for its inviting and interactive atmosphere that encourages connection between art lovers and artists. It’s because of this atmosphere and the ability to interact with artists and learn about their process that the Celebration of Fine Art has become a true destination for art lovers from all backgrounds. In fact, over the course of its 30-year legacy, the show has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors from around the world, many of whom have made the show an annual tradition.
Recognizable by its signature “big white tents,” the 40,000-square-foot interactive studio, showcases works of art ranging from realist to impressionistic, Western realism, and abstract to contemporary across all mediums from stone to metal, wood to glass, and canvas. The show is also home to the ever-popular Art Discovery Series, a live and interactive event in which guests get to hear about the adventures, stories and processes that shape art. Artists discuss topics such as metal-working, jewelry making, abstract art, sculpture, and much more.
“Three decades ago, my parents had a small space and a big vision: to change the way art lovers and artists connect. That vision has guided us over the years, and we continually strive to create a place where people from all walks of life can meet and interact with artists and see their work come to life in front of their eyes,” said Susan Morrow Potje, co-owner and show director. “Thanks to their incredible vision, we’ve been able to grow the Celebration of Fine Art into something bigger than we could have ever dreamed. To uphold their legacy has been an honor, and I look forward to what the next 30 years have in store.”
Throughout the 10 weeks, guests can also catch artist demonstrations of their process, attend an Art Discovery Series, which is held each Friday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., walk the outdoor sculpture garden, which features nearly 100 pieces of life-sized and monumental sculpture, and enjoy lunch or wine in the cafe. In the outdoor sculpture garden also guests can also see woodturning, welding, kiln firings, and bronze pouring demonstrations weekly.
The show is open to guests of all ages. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and military, and children under 12 are admitted for free. Tickets are all-event passes, good for the entire 10-week show during which attendees will have the opportunity to see art transform and meet the artists.
