Paint the Tubac Presidio

Join your hostess Beth Ray down at the Tubac Presidio State Park in celebration of Anza Days on October 16th, 2010. Come ready to paint, sell any books or videos you may have and have some paintings on hand. Artists will handle the sales with a portion to go to help the State Park. This is a beautiful time of year in Tubac, and visitors know the buildings of the Presidio very well so we hope for good sales of your fresh painted works. Contact Beth Ray to pre-register for this exciting event. There is lots of antique shopping, good restaurants and good views in the arty town of Tubac.
