The Maynard Dixon Country Event is a gathering of artists, collectors, community, and friends who love art.
The guiding principles of the event are two fold: we want to help artists in America and we want to ensure the viability of historic preservation. We are deeply connected to the art of Maynard Dixon and his contributions to American art. But rather than focusing solely on the beloved paintings of Maynard Dixon, we focus on the "art spirit" and intention of Maynard Dixon, the artist, poet, and whole person. In choosing to remember Dixon this way, we believe his legacy becomes even more meaningful when it is illuminated by the artists who are living and making art in 2018.
This event is our major fundraising event to support the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts. In bringing collectors to this event, we help the artists on the forefront of American art continue to thrive, and we fulfill our mission for historic preservation. All art sales from Maynard Dixon Country directly funds the artists as well as the annual operating budget of the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts and the Maynard Dixon Living History Museum.
This is not a Plein Air event nor is it a competition. The art displayed in the Thunderbird gallery will be by the artists who have been selected for symposiums, demonstrations and one day workshops. Therefore there is no need to bring special exhibition artwork unless you are invited to do so.
The big day will be on Saturday for the show and sale of the best examples of your art that has not been offered at other venues. Sizes are limited to 16x20 and smaller. As things sell you can back fill in the four spaces that will be alloted.
