Tubac Golf Resort & Spa is the most luxurious and tranquil vacation destination in the Southwest. Set on the historic 500-acre Otero Ranch in the Santa Cruz River Valley, the Spanish Colonial architecture and lush grounds are enhanced by magnificent views of the Tumacacori and Santa Rita mountain peaks. Once owned by Bing Crosby and hosts to many older movie stars.. The movie "Tin Cup" was filmed here....these are a few of my photos of our good time away.
I hope you enjoy seeing the Art of Tubac thru my lens today..colorful and lots of fun! This first piece is for Cindy and Caroline..Don Swanson pottery..Cindy has quite a few pieces of his..but alas at $300.00....this one stayed on the shelf..but what a beauty!
Bright and cheerful metal sculptures everywhere...
This interesting piece of tile work was made by the same lady who owned the tile store In Bouquete, Panama..no wonder her work looked so familiar..I have a piece from that store! A very good day was had by all!
Today we are headed to the 53rd Tubac Art Festival.
175 juried artists from around the country will be on hand exhibiting their works. Festival booths will line Tubac’s streets as they are juxtaposed with more than 100 unique shops, galleries and working artists’ studios. Free horse-drawn trolleys, diverse entertainment and fine festival foods round out the experience. Admission is free, parking is $6 per car. Parking revenue benefits local organizations....good idea!
My camera has a fully charged battery as well as a spare...we are staying overnight at the Tubac Golf and Spa and playing 18 holes on Monday..with 3 other couples and a great weather forecast, we should have a great time!
Patricia Wyatt, an artist from Santa Fe has created this years commemorative poster..."A path with heart".
This is where we will be staying...we are looking forward just seeing all the crafts the festival is famous for..I promise to take lots of photos to share.
