QUARTZSITE - The Quartzsite Art Guild will be hosting a new event March 1 and 2 at the Quartzsite Senior Citizens Center.
The new event is called an Art Fair and it is not only restricted to paintings and fine artwork but they will be also adding in artists' works in other categories, including photography, sculpture, wood and stone carving, bronzes, slap painting, original jewelry designs and much more.
The Fair will be open on March 1 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and on March 2 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Lunch will be available courtesy of the Senior Center both days. Come out and see what this new event has to offer - you will be amazed at the talent that is included in this show.
For more information about this show, contact Jo Stoltz at 928-951-6549.
Also included in this new event is the annual Rock Auction, sponsored by Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite. All the huge slabs of stone that have been painted into beautiful landscapes by local artists that have been decorating businesses and other buildings around town since November, will be available for purchase through auction at this event.
If you have been lucky enough to have seen all the wonderful painted slabs around town, you might have one you really like and this is your chance to bid on it and win it.
The auction for the rocks will take place at the Senior Center on Saturday at 1:30 p.m., so be sure to get there early and look through the Art Fair while you are there.
