Art at the Lakes – Calling all artists

We are looking for artists who want to participate in our art show fundraiser for the Sun Lakes Emergency Relief Fund. The fund helps community residents after an accident, fire, medical emergency and more. The Art at the Lakes 10th annual art show will be held on March 3, 2018, with a rain date of March 10. The show is open from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The show offers paintings in all mediums, pottery, gourds, jewelry, photography, woodworking and much more.

We look forward to another great show featuring great artwork, great food, a great raffle and great people enjoying a beautiful day around the lake. There will be a raffle worth approximately $5,000, music by the Dry Heat Pickers and food served by the Sun Lakes firefighters.
