The Gallery is expanding its roster of teachers from award-winning artists from Santa Cruz County and Tucson. Those currently scheduled to teach during June and July include Nogales gallery owner Nanette Miranda, Virginia Vovchuk, plus Art Garino and Luis Preciado. The program may extend into the Fall.
Another event the Hilltop is participating in this week is the new Rio Rico Community Festival (left). According to organizer David Alvarez, this summer event featuring food, music and performances is expected to draw over 100 kids + adults, and he hopes it will become a summer tradition. Artist Nanette Miranda will represent the Hilltop with craft demonstrations, with president Derwent and Board members dropping by.
