Thunderbird Artists, producer of award-winning fine art and wine festivals, lines the banks of the Scottsdale Waterfront with the greatest selection of juried fine arts, fine wines, delectable chocolates and musicians in the Southwest for the Waterfront Fine Art & Wine Festival.
Patrons love strolling throughout spectacular paintings, bronzes, glass, stone, copper, clay sculptures, photography and jewelry, while listening to live musical entertainment and sipping fine wines. The Scottsdale Waterfront is a superb backdrop, which adds romance to the event with reflections across the waters.
The Scottsdale Waterfront truly is the most sophisticated and stylish community in Downtown Scottsdale. The newest 1.1 million square foot development revitalization project of downtown has become the place to visit, be seen and shop. The waterfront has banks landscaped with festive palm trees, dramatic flowers, spectacular public art sculptures and fountains, plus open air courtyards that give the area a European flair. The Waterfront is located minutes away from 500 specialty shops, boutiques, over 75 contemporary, upscale restaurants and outdoor cafés, high-rise residential buildings and the Scottsdale Art District.
This event is located just south of Nordstrom’s at the South bridge pedestrian Walk and is handicap accessible and free parking.
Featured Artist: Nobe Babayan
Nobe Babayan was born and raised in Armenia, and although he came from a working class family, his dedicated father made sure Nobe always had the tools he needed to express his artistic abilities. Nobe graduated Tirlamesian Art College and received his Masters from the renowned Armenian Art Academy in Yerevan, Armenia in 1983. His favorite medium is clay, “I am ceaselessly fascinated with how a simple, raw substance can turn into something unique, powerful, and completely different from its original form”. Each piece combines contemporary notion with a classical quality, designed to communicate with the viewer on many different levels ranging from quiet spirituality, to delicate sensuality and dynamic motion.
Nobe's art is highly integrated, deeply sensitive and provocative of thought in a manner seldom reached by the multitude of contemporary artists--his sculptures bear the unmistakable imprint of his originality, imagination and personal creative expression.
Joining Nobe Babayan will be renowned artists from throughout the U.S. and abroad, displaying original artwork in a variety of mediums. Patrons can saunter through fine art, while sipping on world-class wines and listening to live music. For $10, patrons will receive an engraved souvenir wine glass and six tasting tickets, providing a unique opportunity to sample an extensive collection of domestic and imported wines, as well as rum cocktails and ice cold craft beers.
The event is located just south of Nordstrom’s on the South Bridge pedestrian walkway and is handicap accessible with free parking. The hours are 10am to 5pm daily. Admission is $3.00 for adults. Mark your calendars to ensure you don’t miss the Waterfront Fine Art & Wine Festival this February!
