We are proud to present Thunderbird Art Works, a new initiative that pairs local artists with businesses. The goal is to bring art out of the studios in which it is created and into public spaces.

The businesses that will be displaying artworks are, Elevate Coffee Co. (2530 W Happy Valley Rd. Suite 1273), Natalino Italian Restaurant (610 E Bell Rd.), and Thunderbird Arts Center (1106 E Grovers Ave).

A closing reception will take place on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Elevate Coffee Co., and Natalino Italian Restaurant.

Both locations will be offering special offers and promotions during the closing reception. Be sure to mention the art show to enjoy the awesome offers below! Elevate Coffee Co. will be offering 15% off your entire purchase. Natalino Italian Restaurant will be offering $2 off beer and wine.

HOW TO BUY: The artworks are available for purchase through our online store. Your new artwork will be held for you to pick-up at the end of the show (after the closing reception on September 13). A portion of your purchase will go to help support arts education in our community.


BACKGROUND: Earlier this spring, students and instructors from Thunderbird Arts Center submitted their artwork to a juried competition. Dave Elliott, Nancy Price, Nik Ridley, and Ed DuBrow were the selected winners.

The following are the pairings of businesses and artists: Dave Elliott with Elevate Coffee Co. Nancy Price with Natalino Restaurant Nik Ridley with Thunderbird Arts Center Ed DuBrow with Thunderbird Arts Center
