Studio tour, slew of exhibits highlight spring-summer lineup of cultural events
Rim Country has drawn a rich array of artists into its embrace of scrub oak, ponderosa pine, free-flowing creeks, mysterious canyons and unending vistas. Many of those arts will bloom profusely starting Thursday and running through Sunday, May 6 at events that include three art exhibitions, a play and a concert. The exhibitions include a Wearable Art fashion show at Gila Community College; a fabric arts display by the Threadplayers, also at the college; and the three-day Payson Art League ’Neath the Rim Open Studio Tour, featuring more than 20 area artists.
