ABOUT MAYNARD DIXON COUNTRY Maynard Dixon Country is much more than just an art show. In fact, it's not really an art "show" at all. Maynard Dixon Country is a gathering bringing together artists, collectors, community, and friends who love art. The guiding principles of the event are two fold: we want to help artists in America and we want to ensure the viability of historic preservation. We are deeply connected to the art of Maynard Dixon and his contributions to American art. But rather than focusing solely on the beloved paintings of Maynard Dixon, we focus on the "art spirit" and intention of Maynard Dixon, the artist, poet, and whole person. In choosing to remember Dixon this way, we believe his legacy becomes even more meaningful when it is illuminated by the artists who are living and making art in 2015. Maynard Dixon Country is also our only fundraising event of the year to support the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts. In bringing serious collectors to this event, we help the artists on the forefront of American art continue to thrive, and we fulfill our mission for historic preservation. All art sales from Maynard Dixon Country directly fund the artists as well as the annual operating budget of the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts and the Maynard Dixon Living History Museum.
Artists begin arriving in the beginning of the week. They will be seen painting in all areas of this region. There will be demonstrations and symposiums discussing the art that gets made here with a wet painting show and sale on Saturday morning.
