Gold Canyon church to host art festival

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

The 13th annual Canyon Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at United Methodist Church on King’s Ranch Road in Gold Canyon.

Musical entertainers arranged by Artistic Director Dr. Jack Kukuk will perform throughout the day.  Returning will be two crowd favorites: the all-female Mariachi Pasion band and the Yellow Bird Indian dancers. New this year is the Desert Wind Steel Band playing Caribbean music and the Salt River Five, a brass instrument quintet.

The juried art show coordinated by Marilyn Barton will feature the work of 87 artists in a wide variety of genres and styles. Many of the artists are residents of Gold Canyon and Apache Junction, but thirty seven are new to this year’s Festival.

Patrons will receive a program at the entry gates listing the artists, their specialties and their booth numbers as well as the performance schedule for the entertainers.

This year’s limited edition Festival poster “Mountain Song” by Gold Canyon resident Sue Ann Dickey will be for sale at an Arts Council tent. Dickey will have a booth nearby and will be available to sign poster purchases.

Del and Sallie Semmen have arranged for food vendors who will provide a variety of tasty food treats and beverages in the Food Court area adjacent to the church’s Education Unit. The Gold Canyon Food Bank will have a table in that area and we encourage Festival patrons to donate to this worthy cause.

The Arts Council tent will have information about this season’s Canyon Sounds performing artist series and sell tickets for future events.  They will also have membership applications to join the Arts Council, a group that strives to make Gold Canyon and the surrounding area a wonderful place to live and that celebrates the arts as an important part of a life well-lived.

The Festival, sponsored by the Gold Canyon Arts Council, features free parking and no admission fee thanks to these much-appreciated business sponsors: SRP, Mountain View Funeral Home, Liberty Utilities, Deseret Family Medicine, Rossmar and Graham, and Resolution Copper Co.

The festival will open to the public at 9 AM with the presentation of the colors and the national anthem.
