Vermillion Promotions has an outdoor art market in Cave Creek from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, October 22 through Sunday, October 24.
For over 25 years, event promoter Vermillion Promotions has brought the fine art world to Arizona, hosting events from Tubac to Prescott.
In October, they will bring their fusion of fine art and Western style to Cave Creek for their Fine Art Market, the first in a series of weekend art markets through April.
Already one of Arizona’s most popular weekend destinations, Cave Creek lives up to its city’s motto, “Where the Old West Lives.”
The pioneering spirit and native sensibility are particularly present in downtown Frontier Town, where the Fine Arts Market will be established.
Frontier Town prides itself on being one of the last strongholds of the Old West, using actual architecture from the 1870s as the basis for their storefronts and structures. The downtown area provides the perfect backdrop for the market’s eclectic array of southwestern and contemporary art.
The Cave Creek Fine Art Market will provide an open-air setting, taking full advantage of Arizona’s mild fall temperatures. The market will feature dozens of artists working in a wide variety of mediums, including bronze sculptures, paintings, glasswork, woodwork, ceramics and fine jewelry.
Among the featured artists will be Western sculptor Craig Bergsgaard. A native of Colorado, Bergsgaard uses his knowledge of classical sculpture to capture, as he put it, “the free spirits, adventurers, wanderers, and despots that were the collective flavor of the time. His sculpture brings to life the adventurous spirit of the early settlers of the Old West, while honoring the pride and history of the native inhabitants.
Vermillion Promotions will partner with a number of wineries across Arizona, as well as the San Francisco Chocolate Factory, so they can bring you “Everything Fine; Chocolate, Art and Wine.
The profits from the wine tasting will be donated to Horses Help.
“Horses Help is a wonderful organization that provides therapeutic and recreational horseback riding opportunities for children and adults with physical, cognitive and behavioral challenges, including at-risk populations and the military. We are delighted to be working with them as a wine charity, ”said event organizer Candy Vermillion.
