This fall, Thunderbird Artists brings the indoors outdoors, with Thunderbird Artists Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival, held on November 4th, 5th & 6th —
our 29th Fall Festival in downtown Carefree
Thunderbird Artists, the leading producer of fine art events in the southwest, is thrilled to present the Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival, our twenty-ninth Fall—and eighty-fifth seasonal—festival in downtown Carefree. As with all Thunderbird Artists events, guests can view fine art selected through a comprehensive jury process, sample fine wines and spirits, snack on festival food, and listen to live music, all while soaking in the sunshine, reveling in the mountain views, and meeting artists and fellow art lovers.
Known in the art world as a Collectors’ Paradise, ™ Thunderbird Artists prides itself on quality and diversity. The festival boasts over 160 juried artists from around the country exhibiting a wide range of oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, gouache, and photography, as well as ink, pencil, and charcoal drawings. Collectors with more surface space than empty walls can take home sculptures in stone, bronze, metal, hand-blown glass, wood, clay, and gourds. And for those who like their art collections ready to wear, Thunderbird Artists offers a wide range of one-of-a-kind jewelry. This year’s featured artist is oil painter Danial James, (artwork pictured throughout) whose diverse work includes animals, beverages, and stylized history.
Wine and Spirits:
Combining world-class fine art with an extensive selection of domestic and imported wines has long been Thunderbird Artists’ winning formula. This year’s participating wineries include old favorites like Schlossadler International out of Oceanside California and welcome the award-winning, Paulden Black Mesa Cellars—known for its Vino Fruttato a blend of homegrown apricot and apples. For an additional fee, patrons receive an engraved souvenir glass with tasting tickets; unlike other festivals with designated alcohol zones, Thunderbird Artists events have patrons wandering at will, sipping wine, and immersing themselves in phenomenal art.
