Good Morning Everyone, and a gorgeous morning it is here in Scottsdale, AZ! The Celebration of Fine Art opened its doors last night for the opening night party and, though all the artists were breathing hard from the four days of fourteen hours constructing their studios and getting their work hung, the guests seemed only to marvel at the result (and enjoy the delectable offerings of Cafe Laredo). Seeing old friends/clients who are always interested to see each artist's new work is food for the artists, and the appreciation feels like a real pat on the back for the efforts we make.
I hope to do something a bit different this year with my blog, posting each day about what's happening at the show, but particularly to acquaint you with our artists. This is my fourteenth year at the show and I have seen so much remarkable work that I wish I had told more people about - now I have this great vehicle to do so.
For now, I'm off to our first official day and to shoot some pics for an overview to share with you tonight!
