Whew! What an adventure! All of us have had our lives turned upside down over the last 6 months or so. Hopefully we have grown and found our own way through!
For me, I am so blessed to have my amazing husband, Paul, to get me through! There are lots of other things as well but let's talk about this weekend’s event which is truly dear to our hearts!
Tomorrow, October 9 the Sonoran Art Virtual Festival will begin its maiden voyage! With the cancellation and closure of many art festivals and galleries many artists are losing their only source of income. Hence the birth of this virtual festival to help support local area artists.
We had a modest goal of 30 participating artists. This number has now expanded to 47!!! With that and many artists donating to SAACA’s Art Care Packages we are achieving our mission.
Sonoran Art Virtual Festival is a vibrant website for you to peruse art with your feet propped up, favorite beverage in hand and sitting in your most comfortable chair! Several artists will be sharing a video view of their artistic creations and their studios. (Mary Sherwood Art Glass’ video is a little corny but its good for a few funny shots of Mary)
During the festival get to know the artists by contacting them through their website. Purchases are arranged between the artist and the customer. Begin a connection with your favorite artist(s) and find out how you can work with them to find that perfect gift or art object for your home. Look for special offers from some artists and for those who are willing to help give back with a donation to SAACA.
Here is a video about the festival. Disregard the fact that I forgot to smile! (haha)
Thanks and enjoy your art excursion!
