Lowe House Project–Calling All Artists! Scheduling Now for the 2018-2019 Season!

Tubac AZ–The Lowe House Project is inviting artists to participate in upcoming events at the artist in residency program in Old Town Tubac, Arizona.

Rio Compartido/Shared River – The Binational Santa Cruz River Exhibit – Complimenting the Smithsonian Institute’s WaterWays Exhibit in October/November 2019

Now in the second year of the Rio Compartido/Shared River program, The Lowe House Project artist in residency, in partnership with the Friends of the Santa Cruz River, is inviting Mexican and American artists to participate with development of an exhibit focusing on the Borderlands cultural and environmental heritage of the Santa Cruz River – a waterway shared by both Mexico and the United States.

The exhibit will be a held at the Historic Lowe House during the Smithsonian Institute’s WaterWays exhibit to be held at the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park from October- November 2019. Participating artists – in-house residents as well as non- resident contributing artists – are encouraged to participate in the educational programming being scheduled, such as hikes, tours, lectures, classes, and visits to public parks and museums. These programs are intended to expand awareness of the habitat, humanity, history, and cultural heritage of the Upper Santa Cruz River basin of the bi-national waterway. Accepted artists will develop a body of work or works in any medium for potential inclusion in the exhibit to run complementary to and concurrent with the Smithsonian WaterWays exhibit.

Instructors/presenters for another season of “playshops” and workshops, readings, films, lectures, and gatherings that encourage stimulating and fun exploration, imagination and stress-free creative expression.

What a great line-up of instructors we had this past season! Folks love exploring their creativity in the Historic Lowe House where the spirit of self expression has been ongoing by working artists for over 50 Years!  I invite artists and creatives to make an appointment to stop by and see what facilities we have to offer. Share you enthusiasm and your skills with your students, friends, and new folks attending our sessions. The Lowe House Project makes it affordable for you and still allows us to keep our doors open for lots of creative fun. I’m eager to hear what great ideas you have for classes, sessions, and playshops for the upcoming season! We’re looking to help folks lighten up, get back in touch with a creative confidence they had as kids, and enjoy each other’s company. We are scheduling now, so reserve your space early and we’ll get started adding your classes to our events publicity network.
