29th Annual Winter Carefree Fine Art and Wine Festival

Festival Details - "29th Annual Winter Carefree Fine Art and Wine Festival"...

Start: Friday, January 14, 2022 10:00AM
End: Sunday, January 16, 2022 5:00PM

Sumati, along with her husband, Michael, capture the essence of the animals and figures, giving them an expression that makes you feel good when you look at them. They create, design and make all the pieces themselves using slab and pinch techniques. Molds or forms are never used. Subtle variations within the piece are generated by using different natural colors. Various textures are also added for accent, and to give a sense of fun and elegance. The finished pieces are air dried for 1-2 weeks, then fired in a kiln that reaches temperatures of up to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. The initial firing removes the water and makes the pieces strong. At this point, colored washes such as iron oxide and manganese dioxide are added to create more color and give pieces their final sheen and tones. The pieces are then fired a second time to 2300 degrees Fahrenheit, which melts the glazes to create beautiful patinas. The finishing process after firing includes the addition of glass eyes and wire whiskers, attaching bases, and adding final touches of color to enhance each individual piece. The whimsy and charm of the pieces make it easy to fall in love with and keep collectors coming back to add to their collection. In addition to Sumati’s creations, the festival brings together more than 150 phenomenally talented artists; displaying works of art in all mediums and subject matters. Thunderbird Artists strives to bring a variety of styles, sizes and price points together, in one location, ensuring something for everyone. Surrounding the event is the crown jewel of Carefree, and an amazing oasis in the desert, the gardens is only one of two public botanical gardens in the Valley. Situated on four acres, patrons can stroll and enjoy fascinating desert plant specimens on a self-guided walking tour which leads visitors to experience a purely visual and emotional connection with nature. Don’t miss this award-winning festival, the Town of Carefree’s ‘Signature Event’, which highlights the artistic works of more than 150 juried fine artists, live music, appetizing food, tempting chocolates and a gorgeous backdrop. It takes place in downtown Carefree, on Ho Hum & Easy Streets. Hours are 10am to 5pm each day. A can’t miss event for all art lovers!
