Need jewelry for a new outfit, occasion, or gift? We have necklaces, bracelets, and earrings with every stone imaginable. Do you need items for your home or patio? We have wood pieces with copper accents, gourds, sculptures, and more. We have handmade tote bags, table covers, specialty purses, and handmade pottery for décor or serving. Have an empty wall or shelf? Local artists have paintings in all mediums, photographs, and wall hangings for your wall. You will find gourds, pottery, wire art, copper art, ceramics, and wood designs for your home.

Want to help the firefighters’ fund that helps the community? Have a hot dog or a cheeseburger with chips and a drink for lunch. All food proceeds go to the Arizona Fire & Medical Firefighters Charities, which help community members after an emergency when they cannot help themselves.

Take a break and listen to music while resting in a chair. The Desert Ramblers and Riff Raff bands will entertain you. Want to take a walk outdoors? While you visit over 90 artist booths, you can walk in sun and shade around the beautiful Cottonwood lake behind the tennis courts.

Want to win a great item from the raffle? Buy lots of raffle tickets. There will be wine baskets, VISA gift cards, Arizona sport items, golf and entertainment prizes, computers, and much more, all from local businesses. The raffle is worth around $7,000. All proceeds go to AFMA Firefighters Charities.

Conclusion: Art at the Lakes is full of variety. The 14th Annual Art Show is on March 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a rain date of March 11. Please mark your calendars to join us for a good time. Hope to see you there.
