The non­profit Scotts­dale Artists’ School will cel­e­brate its 35th an­niver­sary on Novem­ber 10 in con­junc­tion with its an­nual Beaux Arts fundraiser. The show, which opens at 6 p.m., will have the theme of “Dream Big” in honor of one of the school’s orig­i­nal founders, Max­ine John­ston. As the school ex­plains, “It was her dream to bring top-notch artists to Scotts­dale as a re­source to the grow­ing art com­mu­nity, and her hard work and vi­sion made it so. Max­ine, who con­tin­ues to sup­port and guide the school, will serve as the Hon­orary Chair for the event.”

Cel­e­brated in a large party tent on the school’s grounds, Beaux Arts al­lows pa­trons and artists to mix and min­gle as they can view and pur­chase fresh works. New this year is a VIP pass, which pro­vides at­ten­dees ac­cess to the show at 5 p.m. as well as gives them the first op­tions to pre­view and pur­chase art, spe­cial seat­ing, and en­hanced ser­vice and up­grades.

Along with the silent auc­tion with works by fac­ulty and other artists who sup­port the school, there will be a live auc­tion of art and travel pack­ages. G. Rus­sell Case is this year’s Sig­na­ture Artist and he has do­nated his land­scape Shep­herds and Shad­ows to the live auc­tion, while Sandy Scott’s bronze Roost­ing Rooster is the Sig­na­ture Sculp­ture for the raf­fle.

“It takes a com­mu­nity to make a fundrais­ing event suc­cess­ful,” says Trudy Hays, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of SAS, “and we are for­tu­nate to have a great one with some of the best artists in the world who give from their heart, con­tribut­ing their beau­ti­ful art, time and ta­lent en­sur­ing that Beaux Arts is a suc­cess.”

Gen­eral ad­mis­sion to the show can be pur­chased on­line or by phone for $125, or VIP tick­ets can be pur­chased for $200.
