Gearing up for Art at the Lakes

We’re back! Art at the Lakes is the largest art show fundraiser in Sun Lakes. Next month, there will be a call for artists to participate in the show. Applications will be emailed by Nov. 15 to those artists who have participated in the show previously, and for those of you who have given us an email address. If you have not been in the show, applications will be available after Nov. 15 in the Cottonwood and IronOaks art rooms, and at the Cottonwood Palo Verde Administration office. You may also request an application at [email protected] beginning Nov. 15.

The 13th Annual Show is on March 6, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a rain date of March 13. The show is nestled around a beautiful Cottonwood lake with over 80 artists showing their art. The show offers paintings in all mediums: pottery, gourds, jewelry, photography, woodworking, and much more. Our own Sun Lakes firefighters will be selling hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks. The Dry Heat Pickers will once again be entertaining guests with great music. There will also be a raffle again this year worth approximately $5,000. Please mark your calendars and join us for a good time. Hope to see you there.

All of the proceeds from the raffle are given to the Arizona Fire & Medical Authority Firefighters, which benefits community members who need assistance after a fire, accident, or other emergency. Last year’s show raised over $10,000.
