Artists will share creative skills through presentations and demonstrations

FLAGSTAFF - On July 22 and 23, the Coconino Center for the Arts will showcase the talents of a multitude of native artists sharing their art through demonstrations, presentations and additional work for viewing and sale.

Master artists such as Baje Whitethorne Sr., Ed Singer, Elizabeth Whitethorne Benally, Irving Toddy, and others bring their creativity to Flagstaff with hands-on demonstrations in painting, woodworking, jewelry and other fine arts and traditional crafts.

The artists are part of a group which recently formed a nonprofit organization entitled Art of the People. All the members of the organization are involved in using their artwork in various ways to give back to their communities. The artists focus on providing scholarships for young native artists to continue studying and learning the fine, contemporary, and traditional arts.

 Flagstaff Cultural Partners Executive Director Cheryl Brock said her organization would like to extend a special thank you to the City of Flagstaff, Coconino County and APS for making this program possible.

Coconino Center for the arts is located the Coconino Center for the Arts, 2300 N. Fort Valley Road in Flagstaff.
