The Event

The Celebration of Fine Art is where art lovers and artists connect. This juried, invitational show and art sale, now in its 24th year, features more than 40,000 square feet of working studios and works of art by 100 renowned and emerging artists from across the country. During the 10-week event, visitors from around the globe will gather to admire and acquire an unsurpassed selection of artworks in all mediums and styles from some of the continents’ most talented artists. The Celebration of Fine Art opens its doors in Scottsdale, AZ on January 11 through March 23, 2014, with 100 working artists in their studios creating art daily.

Seasoned art collectors and first-time buyers alike find the atmosphere both casual and comfortable. Art lovers truly get to know the people creating the art they love and watch them work in the full spectrum of art media in an impressively broad range of styles. Artists are working continuously within their studios alongside thoughtfully created galleries that not only invite conversation, but encourage visitors to return again and again. And certainly, with more than 40,000 sq ft of space, season pass tickets, and new works of art emerging frequently during the 10 week event, there is ample opportunity to admire and acquire a work of art.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said it best when he wrote “A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” With 100 artists to choose from, there is no better way to fulfill one’s daily requirement of artistic beauty then to take a stroll through the Celebration of Fine Art in search of artwork that will inspire for years to come.
The Celebration of Fine Art has been called “One of the West’s Premier Art Events” by Art & Antiques magazine.
“I’ve been coming to this show for the past six or seven years, and it always has the best mix of artists with a wide array of mediums and visions.”
– a resident of Phoenix, Ariz.
“Absolutely fabulous show – especially to see the artists doing their work right in front of you. Phenomenal work! The best art show I’ve ever seen.”
– a visitor from Chicago, IL.
