WORLD CLASS ART. LOCAL AT HEART.
The Artists of Scottsdale Ranch are a local group of talented, regionally and internationally recognized artists that live in and around Scottsdale Ranch, a planned community located in north-central Scottsdale, Arizona. While they all work independently, they come together annually to display and sell their artistic endeavors in their home community.
At the beginning of the year, the artists host an art show, sale and Silent Auction. Many of the items in the auction are donated by the current featured art show artists. 100% of the proceeds from the auction benefit Virginia G Piper Cancer Center. We were so pleased to donate a large check after our 2022 show to Tina’s Treasures an amazing shop in Virginia G Piper Cancer Center. Our donation was used to help women unable to afford a new bra or wig after their cancer surgery.

About the Founder
Sharon Hillman Martin
Sharon Martin's love of art started as a child and at the age of 10 she attended Scholarship classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. She loved drawing and painting the female figure, but it was sculpture in clay and wax that became her passion. As a mother of three, she juggled raising her children and continued learning her craft at Suburban Fine Arts Center in Highland Park, IL.
September 2004 Sharon lost her daughter suddenly. It was then that the Nikki L. Martin Scholarship program began. The Nikki L Scholarship is awarded each year to a student at Nova Southeastern University Law School. The scholarships are funded by gifts from family, friends and Nikki's colleages and the art of SHM.
After moving to Scottsdale, AZ Sharon's neighbors came over to her house and fell in love with her sculptures. They wanted to know if they were for sale. She sold three then more and that's when the idea of the Art Show was born. The proceeds she raised from the sale of her art could fund the scholarship--Niki was her biggest fan.
The year the Art Show started Sharon was diagnosed with breast cancer. A fellow artist introduced Sharon to the Virginia G Piper Cancer Center which she toured and was in awe with what they were doing. She learned about the steps one needs to take to deal with breast cancer, finding the right surgeon and oncologist, and radiation and chemo or not. So many things she didn't know and were so very helpful. That's how the Silent Auction benefiting Virginia G Piper Cancer Center Outreach Programs was born.
We thank the amazing Sharon Martin for starting The Artist of Scottsdale Ranch Art Show showcasing talented and varied local artists. Also, Creating the Silent Auction where 100% of the proceeds are given to support the Outreach Programs of Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center. The Artists in the show voluntarily donate a piece or pieces of their art to the Silent Auction to help raise money for Virginia Piper. There is also a volunteer from Virginia G Piper who will be at the show to tell our guests what VGPCC is all about.
So many wonderful reasons why you should visit the Artists of Scottsdale Ranch yearly Art Show!
