Hidden In The Hills Studio Tour 2020

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA541769000

Wow, I almost missed this one. But if you are looking for some fun. Why not spend a few hours touring the scenic Desert Foothills communities of Cave Creek, Carefree, and North Scottsdale, then look no further than the annual Hidden In The Hills Artist Studio Tour? The event is hosted in November on two successive weekends. This year’s event is scheduled for November 20, 21, 22 and again on November 27, 28, 29, so there is still time to enjoy this year’s tour.

The free, self-guided studio tour, features over 150 local artists each demonstrating and displaying their unique talents.

Sponsored by the non-profit Sonoran Arts League, the tour, is now in its 24th year. Is a rare opportunity for art enthusiasts to observe artists at work in their private studios. It also gives the public the opportunity to learn about the artist's method and creative process. You may also have a chance to buy from them in a friendly, engaging atmosphere that showcases quality art.

Today I am featuring local award-winning artist, Billy Bodnar. Bodnar is well known for his whimsical caricatures hand carved from basswood.

Just take a look at some of Billy’s imaginative work.

I don't get up that way very often, but it is definitely beautiful in that area.  Those carvings are amazing!  How is your tennis game these days?
