Scottsdale's Celebration of Fine Art showcases the work of 100 artists working in a variety of media. Each ticket permits unlimited admission over the 10-week period, which began on January 15 and lasts until March 27. Browse the 40,000-square-foot space and observe piece-crafters at work, freely chatting with them about their process or the career trajectories of painting elephants. Stroll inside the white tents and explore works rendered from oil paint, ceramics, stone, glass, and neo-classical gelatin molds. The outdoor sculpture court displays more than 100 structures for the perusal of decorators, architects, and other bronze aficionados. The show's jury appraises the quality of the artwork using standards tailored to each specific medium, so jewelers never suffer generic criticism like "derivative of Franz Schubert" or "too much paprika." An on-site cafe offers sandwiches and snacks artfully dubbed after O'Keefe, Picasso, and more, ensuring taste buds feast as thoroughly as eyes.
Family-owned Husick's offers gourmet foodstuffs and gift baskets, wines, and periodic dinners in a charming country store. With a seat at a Winemaker's Dinner, you'll join up to 20 guests for a sumptuous, seasonal meal in the heart of the country, complete with an introduction to some regional wines and a chance to play footsy with a devilishly handsome Tule elk. The menu abounds with fresh, local ingredients, starting with crab cakes dressed in red-pepper aioli sauce ($11) and a salad of field greens, delta pears, Cypress Grove chevre and pear vinaigrette ($13). Roasted sage and butternut squash soup comes drizzled with truffle oil ($11) and tastes like autumn in a bowl, without the unpleasantness of dry leaf-bits between your teeth. For the main course, feast on braised short ribs in pinot noir sauce, roasted rosemary-garlic fingerling potatoes, french-cut green beans with prosciutto and mushrooms ($37) and a glass of Spoto cabernet ($21). Crème brûlée served with fresh berries and mint in chocolate cups ($14) provides an elegant companion to Bogle port ($8). Throughout your meal, you'll sample house wines from the likes of Old Vine Zin, James Blake, Tierra Del Ore, and Heringer Estates.

Roam the 5,000-square-foot gallery at Think Art and you'll see hundreds of original pieces of artwork by more than 75 artists, from oil paintings to metal wall sculptures. To many that sounds enticing, but to some, the vast selection may be intimidating. Fortunately, customers can enlist experts from the gallery to come by to evaluate their home or office space and help them decide which pieces would look best there. Think Art can then deliver and install the pieces the customer selects during these art consultations. If the client needs a large space decorated, the gallery can even arrange for an artist to produce a mural of a scenic desert or a stunning replica of a blank wall.
Of course, if a client already owns a piece and simply needs to frame it, Think Art can handle that as well.
