Sun City Vistoso holds its community-wide art and crafts fair this Saturday, Oct. 2, with more than 70 artists and designers showing their works.

The Arts and Crafts Festival 2010 runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sun City Vistoso Mountain Vista Recreation Center, 1495 E. Rancho Vistoso in Oro Valley. Much of the sprawling building will be filled with art, crafts and people.

"That's a comfortable fit," said volunteer Kathy Hrdy, co-chairing the show with Don Jovag.

All participants are residents of Sun City Vistoso. They have paintings, photography, woodworking, pottery, stained glass, fine jewelry and more to show and sell. Many of the artists and crafts people have transitioned from the demands of a career to more creative and expressive media. Others use technology as a springboard to creativity. They've been working steadily on their creations; the first registration date for this year's show was in February.

"I'm sure they've been working for months," said Hrdy, a volunteer with the sponsoring Sun City Vistoso Gift Shop.

Admission is free. Catalina Community Services is going to be accepting food donations. Many of the show's participants have donated art for a raffle. Demonstrations in silver casting, wood printing, overlay, carving of gourds and the art of knotting pearls are scheduled through the day.

From 9 into the morning, guests can buy pastries and beverages. Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and beverage are on the afternoon menu.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
