Sonoran Glass School invites Tucson-area artists working in all media to participate in our 2017 Autumn Art Show. Work must integrate well into a fall-themed show and include glass in some capacity.
We expect exhibiting artists to receive good exposure through this show. The Autumn Art Show opens on the same day as our popular Pumpkin Fiesta event, a fall-themed event with live glassblowing and interactive experiences. This opening weekend is also during Tucson’s Fall Open Studio Tours, of which Sonoran Glass School is a part. This is a self-guided weekend tour of local art studios organized and promoted by the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona and presented by the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance
Open to all Tucson-area artists. Accomplished, mid-career and emerging artists are encouraged to apply.
