The April 27-29 Art and Craft Show will consist of many fine artists and craftsmen who will have all kinds of great and interesting things to show. This will probably be the best weather show of the season, and everyone is coming out for it, so it will be a full show which will have jewelry, paintings, mixed media wall art, pottery, photography, glass art, rugs, soap and spa products, wood trivits, copper art, sculpture, and much more.

The featured artist is Mark White of Casa Grande. He is a painter and his medium is watercolor and oils. He does a wide range of artwork and his interests lie in the automotive field and Southwestern landscapes. His work comprises loose and flowing paintings of pottery, cliff dwellings and old barns as well as very detailed automotive renderings and paintings.His detailed paintings start with graphite drawings and sometimes ink renderings. His other work which is looser and freer in watercolor, is done with no real advance detail, although he may do several watercolor sketches to achieve the look he wants. He is known to work at the shows doing small oils from photographs of Sedona landscape. Mark is retired from a 25 year Railroad career in Engineering, Marketing and sales. He has always considered art and drawing a part of his life, and upon finishing his career, he decided to take a more serious approach to art and do it full time.

Other painters and fine artists at the show will include Larry Beck, June Payne Hart and Terri Thurman whose work is painted copper repossee. Jewelry artists will include Jennifer Defoe, Dyanne Silver, Patty Hoisch, Greg Anderson, Viola Chavez, Dave and Dena Small, Judy Olvera, Glo Ybarra, Gene Sabia, Katherine Duskin, and Bill Duran.
