Scottsdale Artists’ School (SAS) is set to host its annual fundraiser, Beaux Arts, on Saturday, November 9, 2019. The theme for this event is Dream. Believe. Achieve. Thirty-six years ago, SAS was only a dream to its founders. During the years of its conception these same people were faced with obstacle after obstacle and they continued to believe they could build a school that would be a local and national cornerstone to the fine art community.

From the Scottsdale Artists’ School:

Since its beginning, Scottsdale Artists’ School, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has been a prominent influence in the community and continues to teach the fundamentals of fine art to artists and aspiring artists of all ages and skill levels. The school offers diverse programming and scholarships to a wide range of students who might not be able to receive this education without assistance. Proceeds from Beaux Arts are vital to supporting these programs.

The evening will be celebrated in a large party tent on the school’s grounds, and guests will have the opportunity to mingle with art enthusiasts and artists, both local and visiting. Guests are invited to come dressed in a 1930s, 1940s, or 1950s glam style to complement the Scottsdale Artists’ School’s 2019 signature painting, donated by Joseph Lorusso and painted exclusively for Beaux Arts.

Lorusso is an instructor at SAS, and his work has been shown nationally and internationally and has won numerous awards and honors. He has been featured in many high-end art magazines, and his work is represented at fine art galleries across the United States.

In addition to the opportunity to purchase original works of art, guests will also enjoy music, raffles, libations, and a light dinner. The signature raffle prize this year is a wonderful sculpture by Sandy Scott, who has donated one of her very own pigs entitled “Eat More Beef” from her private collection. Ms. Scott is a master sculptor whose art, including the remarkable Presidential Eagle outside the Clinton Library, graces many well-known places across the U.S.

The event will feature a silent auction, which will contain travel packages, a variety of artwork from well-known professional artists, including oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, sculptures, and more. A limited set of juried work from our student artists will also be available in the silent auction.
