Thunderbird Artists stages another captivating fine art experience at the Arizona Fine Art
EXPO. This show continues to receive rave reviews throughout the seventy-four
continuous days of art adventure!!
The EXPO unites an impressive gathering of 100 nationally acclaimed and award-winning artists that passionately produce art in studios and cabanas. Artists can be seen painting in all mediums, sketching in pen & ink, pastels and pencil, assembling mosaics, sculpting clay, carving wood, composing mixed media on canvas, welding, designing and sculpting jewelry. Outside, artists can be found working in outdoor cabanas carving alabaster, etching stone, welding metal, steel and copper, patina finishing, wood carving and more! The quaint Café de Expo offers scrumptious breakfasts, snacks and lunch in the afternoon. Enjoy eating indoors, surrounded by working artists, or sit outdoors under the festive umbrellas and listen to the whispering sounds of water fountains in the Sculpture Garden for added pleasure.
The EXPO Artists' Marketplace is not just another boutique or gift shop with imported goods from other countries, but an amazing marketplace filled with participating artist's fine arts and unique crafts. Here the artists sell their original small paintings and prints, sculptures, unique handmade gifts, fine pottery, jewelry, specialized note cards, romantic keepsakes, souvenirs and much more.
Attendees enjoy the ambiance of quiet, leisurely strolls on paths that flow in and about the spectacular two-acre Sculpture Garden. See stunning medium, life-sized and monumental sculptures in bronze, stone, clay, metal, copper and mixed media. Listen to the delightful sounds of whispering waters flowing from unique water fountains along the paths. The Koi pond is sponsored by The Gnome Pond and our sponsor, Goldfield Koi, supplies beautiful Koi and other fish for the focal point of interest. Bridges sponsored by Iron Mountain Bridge Company intersect and cross over flowing water, stones and sandy paths connecting sculptures in bronze, clay, stone, metal and copper along the garden trails.
