ABOUT THE OWNER -
Sandi Jewell started in the art industry as a fine art photographer participating in art shows in the 80’s and early 90‘s, dissatisfied with the quality of shows in the Tucson area, she decided to promote a quality Fine Art Festival. After two years of research and planning, Sandi’s first show took place in November 1997, at the Plaza Palomino shopping center in Tucson. This show led to several other venues in Tucson, which now includes the popular Ventana Village Art Festival, located in northeast Tucson and the Oro Valley Art Festival, located northwest of Tucson. With Sandi’s reputation of promoting quality shows she had the opportunity to expand into the Phoenix market. In March 2002 she started with a show in Chandler at the Casa Paloma/AJ’s Center, and then into Scottsdale at the Summit of Scottsdale Center and Glendale at the Village of Arrowhead/AJ’s Center. This spring she is pleased to announce another new location at the very rapidly growing Rancho Sahaurita Community Center in Sahuarita, AZ. just south of Tucson and north of Green Valley.
Her goal has always been and will be, to continue to promote a good quality Fine Art Festival in upscale locations. Customers who appreciate quality artwork will enjoy and appreciate the variety of artwork from the fine selection of juried artists at our Art Festivals.
