Art of the Cowgirl is a multi-day event at Corona Ranch in Phoenix, Arizona, conveniently located just six miles from downtown Phoenix, 10 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport and 45 minutes from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Opening the weekend on Friday the Art of the Cowgirl Legends Reception is a chance to come together to visit and connect with artists, clinicians, musicians and fellow western folks.
