This year's featured artist is Diana Madaras, a signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, who has been featured in 10 one-woman shows, and whose art has begin shown in the Tucson Museum of Art.

The Empire 100 Western Art Show & Sale show also features an "Empire Wall," artwork inspired by the images of the Historic Empire Ranch.
