Oracle's annual arts tour to be held April 17-18

Oracle artists and artisans have set the weekend of April 17 and 18 for the 18th annual tour of artists' home studios, galleries, and shared-location venues.

New this year is a "welcome center," where visitors can pick up self-guiding maps and view displays and photos of artwork to be found at tour locations. Tour hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

Each year, artists in Oracle, some 35 miles northeast of Tucson, greet art admirers, premiere new works and give demonstrations. "As in years past, a diverse selection of art techniques and media will be offered," a release said.

All events are free.

A downloadable map and details about individual artists will be available mid-March at the tour Web site, http://www.oraclestudiotour.com/">www.oraclestudiotour.com.

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.
