The Tubac Center of the Arts and Rancho Santa Cruz announce “Plein Air on the Santa Cruz,” Tubac’s first Plein Air Retreat and Workshop, culminating in an exhibition and sale to take place during the Fall Arts & Crafts Festival, November 3rd and 4th, 2018. This is a unique opportunity for artists to experience a taste of southern Arizona’s ranch life and an enriching artistic experience with fellow plein air artists from the region and beyond. 

For more information and to enter the juried selection process, contact Michael Fenlason at exhibitions@tubacarts.org. The retreat starts Tuesday, October 30th, and runs through Sunday, November 4th. A variety of guest artist packages are available with or without meals and lodging at the ranch. All packages include paint outs, workshops, welcome reception, barbecue, Sunday brunch, and snacks, as well as the opportunity to show and sell work at the Tubac Center of the Arts during the Fall Arts Festival.

Tubac is one of Arizona’s oldest towns, an 1800’s Spanish Presidio turned artist colony, just a 45-minute drive south of Tucson. Since 1963, The Tubac Center of the Arts has hosted highly acclaimed art shows and events throughout the year for local residents and visitors from all over the globe. http://tubacarts.org

The historic Rancho Santa Cruz has recently re-opened for business and offers lodging and a gallery featuring local artists. Located in a large grove of magnificent cottonwood trees along the Santa Cruz River, the 100-year old property has been revived to its authentic western roots and is becoming a destination for artistic and cultural retreats. http://ranchosantacruz.us.
