Friday show reveals treasure trove of Rim Country artists

Turns out, Rim Country could declare itself an artist colony. The proof will go on display for a fleeting two hours this evening at Gila Community College, with a show featuring hundreds of pieces in every conceivable medium produced by student artists and some of their teachers. “I keep wondering, where did these people come from?” said pottery teacher David Sanchez about the 30 students from his classes that will display pieces in GCC’s fourth annual student/faculty art show. “It’s shocking the talent that’s here.” Each of the teachers with students entering work in the show made similar comments about the blossoming of talent — sometimes from people who have never created art, sometimes from people creating in isolation for years.
