Question: Where will Kayenta Artists Edward Hlavka, Jeff Ham and Ginny Norcott be on Saturday, October 12, at 2pm?


They’ll be sculpting and painting their hearts out at the 2nd Annual Quick Draw & Live Auction!  This year, we have 13 professional artists – 11 painters and 2 sculptors – who will be creating original works of art in just 90 minutes.  Ed, Jeff & Ginny will be shoulder-to-shoulder in the Cabaret Outdoor Theatre creating magic as spectators circle, cheer, photograph and witness the artistic process unfold.  Come cheer our Kayenta artists, along with Spike Ress, Kate Starling, Aimee Bonham, Janet Tenneson-McCarty, Bonnie Conrad, L’Deane Trueblood, Sara Straw, Sang Choi, Michelle Deaderisk and Russell Black.  Your chance to purchase their artwork immediately follows during the Live Auction at 4pm.  Be a Part of the Art!

Call for Artist Housing and Volunteers

A big THANK YOU to families who are hosting artists this year!

However, we still need more rooms!

The St. George hotel rooms are booked due to the Huntsman Games.  If you have a lonely and lovely casita or guest bedroom, and would like to extend some of our famous Kayenta Hospitality to particiating artists, please contact Susan Jager at:

The festival couldn’t happen without the great efforts of our volunteers and immediate volunteer opportunities exist,  As October approaches, we’ll also need helpful hands on site before, during and after the festival.

  • I have got to say how impressed I am by the concept. The area is beautiful and peaceful and the houses blend into the desert.

  • Kayenta, I simply love it! This is the only place I stay when I go to St. George.  We just hang out, go for walks or take a dip in the beautiful pool....

  • Famous artists of the past simply painted their surroundings. Van Gogh painted his sunflowers; Matissa painted his breakfast. I can paint Kayenta.

  • Kayenta is like living in a place where you are on vacation year round. This is our place to create family memories.

A scenic journey through Kayenta's history.

The Kayenta Community, in southern Utah's red rock country, is a tranquil enclave surrounded by protected lands. A 2,000 acre master planned community of fine homes, custom building sites and community amenities, is located 7 miles west of St. George, Utah. Kayenta is a unique departure from the norm, focused on moderate land use, moderate-sustainable growth, and an appreciation for our magnificent natural setting. Nearby, residents find adventure in the southwest's abundance of places to explore. Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks and Snow Canyon are within view. While just beyond the horizon are places like the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and "Vegas."
