Since its conception in 1989 to this year's 27th annual show, the BASIC Circle of Art, shows no signs of diminishing in popularity or talent.

Held in Christmas Circle Park in the heart of Borrego Springs, approximately 60 artists are invited to participate in the show each year, exhibiting quality paintings and art works. With each artist representing a variety of media including oil and watercolors, photography, sculpture, ceramics, pottery, weaving and jewelry.

This fine arts show is FREE to the public and despite the 16 - 22 mile-per-hour winds, artists can be seen preparing for this weekend's event.

The Circle of Art is sponsored by Basic Assistance to Students in the Community (BASIC), a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit tax-exempt corporation that provides grants & scholarships for educational purposes to the residents of Borrego Valley. Proceeds from the show are used for the scholarship fund.
