Display It, Wear It, Show It, Enjoy It is the theme of this year’s 15th Annual Sacramento Arts Festival, November 2 – 4, 2012, at the Sacramento Convention Center. With over 225 of America’s best contemporary craftspeople and fine artists, the weekend offers a chance to become emmersed in more than 15,000 original works of art. In keeping with tradition, the festival theme is the holidays and the floor of the Sacramento Convention Center Exhibit Hall will be decorated accordingly. Tradditionally, the Sacramento Arts Festival signals the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season.
From abstract to traditional, modern to whimsical, the festival includes ceramic artists, woodworkers, painters, sculptors and jewelers as well as a vast array of one-of-a-kind artwork. Three prominent art galleries, from the Sacramento, Davis and Grass Valley regions, will also participate. In addition to the spectaular art, interactive settings will put artists and fans together for fascinating close up demonstrations.
“I spend months visiting cities and artists around the country to find just the right mix of talent for the Sacramento Arts Festival,” said Warren Cook, Producer. “Northern California is home to many of the best, which will be reflected in the exhibitors at this year’s event.”
Alongside the professional artists, young local talent will also be on display. The Sacramento Area Schools Art Competition Gallery will showcase artwork from Sacramento area elementary, middle and high school competitions judged by two noted artists from the Sacramento Arts Festival.
An entertainment “rest stop” of sorts will provide talented performers of comedy, juggling, and music while Restaurant Row provides the good eats—a great place to relax between shopping sprees.
“The economy has forced people to contemplate their extra purchases—making every one a standout—unique, memorable and personal,” contemplated Warren Cook. “The festival is a great place to stretch your holiday dollars with one-of-a-kind holiday gift purchases.”
