QUARTZSITE - Everyone is invited to come to see the 4th Annual "Rockin' in Quartzsite" Artist Reception that will be held on Nov. 3 from 6-8 p.m. at the Tyson Wells Showgrounds in Quartzsite. Sponsored by Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite, this event has been a one of a kind for the past three years, highlighting the talents of local artists who have spent countless hours painting scenery pictures, unique local historical sites and much more on huge slabs of rock. This is a chance for the public to come to the "Rock Motel", set in one of the metal buildings at Tyson Wells Showgrounds on Kuehn Ave.

The building will be transformed into a wonderful backdrop for the artists to display their masterpieces for all to see.

Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite is a non-profit organization that was established to help provide benefits to local charities and other non-profit organizations by promoting the community of Quartzsite and surrounding areas. This is the fourth year for the Rockin' in Quartzsite event and it has grown every year with hundreds of people coming out to get a sneak preview of these works of art. The painted rocks will then be "adopted" by sponsors, who will have them moved to their place of business and keep them until March 2, when the group will hold a Rock Auction to raise money and find the rock art pieces a permanent home.

People are urged to look around town at these pieces of local art and vote for the People's Choice favorite for this year. The winner will be announced at the Rock Auction in March.

This celebration of the Arts is a unique event that gets bigger and better each year. Come and meet the artists who have created their works of art on simple slabs of stone. There will be hors d'oeuvres and more at the event, so come and see something really unique and fun. For more information, contact Rain Golden-Bear, President of Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite.
