Now entering its 27th year, the perennial Celebration of Fine Art show is recognized for its exceptional art and artists, welcoming experience and interactive atmosphere. And for artists, whether new to the industry or seasoned professionals, it’s a great education in the best way to sell art!
Steeped in History and Tradition
The traditions of the Celebration of Fine Art run deep, and they are showcased by the true heart and renewed inspiration that each year brings. Like all great things, the Celebration of Fine Art started as a vision by people passionate about giving art lovers an alternative way to experience art and interact with the artists.
Purposefully informal yet always professional, the Celebration of Fine Art encourages conversation and friendships between artists and patrons. This convivial and comfortable atmosphere also inspires camaraderie among the artists who enjoy the artistic stimulation they find working alongside each other during the 10-week show.
The Celebration takes place at the southwest corner of the Loop 101 and Hayden Road. 40,000 square feet of art spans the space – plus a landscaped sculpture garden featuring outdoor art sprawling on an acre of land. Special exhibitions and events are held throughout the 10 weeks, running from January 14 to March 16, and a cafe is open daily to encourage mixing and mingling among both artists and visitors.
The Best Way to Sell Art: At an Art Festival!
For ArtisanHD artists like Emily Randolph, the Celebration of Fine Art is really the best way to sell art. Emily’s contemporary fine art expresses her love of color, form and texture – all of which are best seen in person. Her abstracts range from lyrical to literal – and are often playfully intertwined.
Her process begins with taking micro-imagery of organic or man-made materials, then transforming them into luxurious, larger-than-life statement pieces like 3D mixed-media sculptures; hand-finished, one-of-a-kinds; and limited-edition prints.
To entice you to stop by and see Emily’s work, it’s best introduced as a video to really get the depth and sparkle across. Her mixed media pieces, composed of Dibond, Acrylic and Sintra really pop under the lights!
The Celebration Showcases Local Talent
Beth Zink, another ArtisanHD talent and well-known Arizona artist, has been creating her “vibrant contemporary botanical” paintings for over 20 years. Her work is recognized by the bold, imaginative color and the dynamic, detailed close-ups of plants and flowers. Her paintings hang in many private and corporate collections, restaurants and healthcare facilities around the country. And at the Celebration of Fine Art, she introduces her talent to more art enthusiasts every year. After admiring her talent, people often comment: “your work makes me happy!” This is a compliment she considers one of the highest an artist can receive.
“Painting is my passion. Every blank canvas is another exciting adventure, another challenge. The creative experience of painting brings me joy, and it thrills me when people view my work and share in that joy.”
Beth’s newest paintings are for sale in her Gallery. But there is SO much more to see at the 10-week Celebration of Fine Art! Be sure to set a day aside in the upcoming weeks to enjoy this amazing annual exhibit and engage with some incredible local and national talents. The Celebration isn’t just the best way to sell art – it’s also the best way to buy art! Who knows, maybe you find the perfect piece for your home or office.
