SaddleBrooke Ranch artists are preparing for the upcoming Fall SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR) ARTwalk, held on Saturday, Oct. 22, and Sunday, Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.

Each year, there are more SBR artists joining the ARTwalk, and each year, the work is even more spectacular. The creativity of our residents is beyond belief. Many just started their artwork after moving to the Ranch, while others have been perfecting their art in so many unique ways. The various clubs from the Creative Arts and Technology Center have been providing workshops to assist members to develop their art.

Registration will start Sept. 1 and the deadline to sign up is Oct. 4. Artists are allowed to sell in their homes. There will be several artists selling with their clubs in the Creative Arts and Technology Center. If you only have a few pieces to sell, we can match you up with another artist to sell together.

Once artists have registered, we will be posting photographs of the artwork from our SaddleBrooke Ranch artists on a closed group Facebook page, SBR ARTwalk Artists.

This year, the SBR ARTwalk has two sponsors:

* Desert Life Pharmacy, Brianne Spaeth, pharmacist. She was very interested in expanding our ARTwalk even more by becoming a sponsor.

* SBRanch Realty, Doug Sedam and Lynn Baker (residents of the Ranch). They are proud to sponsor our extremely talented artists.

The directory and map for the Fall SBR ARTwalk will be available at the Ranch House Front Desk near the ballroom entrance and at the La Hacienda Club front entrance counter the week prior to the ARTwalk. You can also request to receive an electronic copy.

To sign up to participate in the SBR ARTwalk, the registration fee is $15. The registration form and guidelines can be sent to you by contacting Linda Shannon-Hills, SBR ARTwalk coordinator, at [email protected].
