Thunderbird Artists is going west! That is west of Phoenix Valley, in Arizona, to the City of Surprise! Surprise warrants a weekend stay for the whole family. Surprise Stadium is home of the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals ‘Spring Training’ and the Surprise Recreation Campus has a fishing lake, along with a 25 court Tennis & Racquet Complex. Surprise is located 20 miles northwest of Phoenix. Just 45 minutes from downtown Phoenix, Surprise is where you can connect with the charm of mountain park lands, a regional lake and the untouched open Sonoran Desert. The neighborhoods are clean, distinctive and unique; making it an ideal location for a Thunderbird Artists’ annual event.
Thunderbird Artists attracts nationally acclaimed, world-renowned and top emerging independent artists that will personally showcase their new original artworks. The event also encompasses wine tasting – for an additional $10 fee, which includes a souvenir wine glass and 6 tasting tickets – allowing patrons a chance to relax and enjoy art. The romance of sipping fine wines, holding hands and strolling throughout juried fine arts while listening to live music adds to the ambiance of this event.
