Celebration of Fine Art 2024

Ryan T. Schmidt, in his 5th year of participating at the Celebration of Fine Art, has collected his largest sculptures around United States to be shown at the 34th Annual Show in Scottsdale, Arizona. The large-scale sculptures came from Bridgehampton, Miami, and Grand Rapids. We are so excited for our community and our visitors to enjoy this unique setup of massive artwork.

The Celebration of Fine Art is Arizona’s longest-running art show. It brings together 100 artists from across America, all invited to spend 10 weeks creating pieces in front of visitors. This world-class event will be open daily from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. through Sunday, March 27. The Location is in the "Big White Tents" at 18400 N Hayden Rd Scottsdale AZ 85255.

The Celebration of Fine Art show is also home to the ever-popular Art Discovery Series, a live and interactive event in which guests get to hear about the adventures, stories and processes that shape art. Artists discuss topics such as metal-working, jewelry making, abstract art, sculpture, and much more.

Ryan T. Schmidt will be one of the panelists on January 26, 2024 Friday at 4:00 P.M. Join us for some wine, cheese and artistic dialogue at a Panel Discussion on Architecture & Art and discover how the two have influenced each other. Here are the dates for the 2024 Art Discovery Series:
