About the Hi-Art program
The Hi-Art program at Tubac Center of the Arts Hi-Art is a high school art program that encourages and supports art students at area high schools: Sahuarita, Walden Grove, Rio Rico, and Nogales.
The students participate in an annual exhibit; learn how to write a resume, an artist statement, and photograph and present their work for display. Students get the opportunity to sell their work during the exhibit. The submissions are evaluated by an outside jury, and awards are presented to the winning students.
Your hosts for the event, Debbie Barrios & Jackie Zeitler of Turquoise Tortoise Rogoway Gallery and Susan Walsh of Tubac Territory Furniture & Interiors, established this annual charitable event that combines the talents of local artists, a live auction with renowned auctioneer, Gary Corbett, Western Swing music and a fabulous Sonoran Dinner. This special event not only supports our local youth but brings the community together for a wonderful December evening.
