The Sonoran Arts League, which promotes art, artists and art education through leadership and service in the northern desert foothills, will host an arts-filled grand opening free event on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 4-7 PM at its new home in Stagecoach Village (The Center for the Arts), which is located at 7100 E. Cave Creek Road, 144, in Cave Creek, Ariz., 85331.
According to Sonoran Arts League executive director Pat Bell-Demers, the new Center for the Arts will showcase art education programs, local artists, gallery, free art library, after school classes for youth, workshops and amazing art for sale.
“We are excited to share our art destination with Arizona residents, visitors and guests,” says Bell-Demers. “The League’s Center for the Arts is a destination where people can join a workshop or open studio, learn a new artistic skill and support the power of art as it enriches life and builds valuable skills.”
During the grand opening, guests will tour the center, enjoy art demonstrations, entertainment, face painting and art activities for children, and experience fantastic food from Indigo Crow and the newly opened Creekers Beer & Crab Shack in Stagecoach Village.
”The center is the best creative resource around and offers people a venue where they can learn, purchase, view, experience and taste the visual arts,” adds Bell-Demers. “It’s right in line with our mission and we’re looking forward to enhancing collaborations with community partners through unique public art events.“
In addition, the grand opening event will feature the many outreach programs of the Sonoran Arts League and a number of exhibits and upcoming art shows, including youth art created at the center and information on the League’s free veterans art program, among other exhibits.
Bell-Demers says the extravaganza also will kick off the Sonoran Arts League’s capital campaign efforts to purchase the building. The League’s Center for the Arts also is available to corporate groups or those seeking a unique location for their special events.
