Verde Valley Archaeology Center is proud to present the 2018 Annual Paul Dyck Celebration of Archaeology in Art Show and Sale. This is part of the weekend-long Camp Verde Spring Heritage Festival that includes the Verde Valley Archaeology Fair, the Spring Pecan and Wine Festival, and the Verde River Runoff. The Festival has become a Sedona/Verde Valley area favorite and will again take place in the heart of historic Camp Verde, Arizona. Last year’s event drew crowds of more than 5,000.
The theme is “Art Inspired by Archaeology and Archaeology as Art.” Subject matter is limited to representations of archaeological subjects, including ancient dwellings, rock markings (rock art), landscape with archaeological features, or inspired by the ancient American Southwest people, textiles and pottery. The Celebration is open to all artists 18 years and older. Accepted medium include original, contemporary, representational art including oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, bronze and wood sculpture, pottery, fiber arts and photography. Awards available for best representation of the theme.
