Celebration of Fine Art


On Friday I made a trip out to north east Scottsdale to visit the 25th Annual Celebration of Fine Art.  It is certainly one of my favorite things to do every winter.  With around 100 artists on site and creating art as well as selling art, the event is as much educational as it is beautiful.  I talked with many of the artists this year and caught up with a few that I visit every year.

The above piece is by sculptor Michael Jones and it measures 16 feet long by 5 feet high.  I could see this piece residing in the someone's back yard or in the lobby of a grand building.  In fact, it would look perfect on the raised outdoor area that surrounds the Phoenix Convention Center.

The artist had some smaller pieces for sale also, like this table, mirror and fireplace screen.

I saw some pretty spectacular things and I'll show you a couple more later.


I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I've stopped to smell the roses in a California garden.




City Daily Photo bloggers post photographs on a theme on the first day of each month.  On 
February 1, they will address this intriguing question:  If you had to leave forever the city 
from which you usually post, what would you miss most?

The large one looks magnificent, a real 'landscape' piece.

Fantastic! Oh I'm jealous! :-)

That top piece is magnificent and I'd have no problem putting that in my yard although I think it would look better in the desert...

Stunning!
I never saw anything of the kind which makes it even more valuable.

I've got 10 acres. Plenty of room for it. I love it. I need some mountains anyway.

I think that mountain piece would look beautiful most anywhere!

I love the top sculpture, Sharon! It would even look great up here in winter with snow all around it.

I like that second work particularly, Sharon!

Randy said...

Interesting.

Jack said...

There are many places out there where that piece would fit in beautifully.
