Gualala Arts will host the 9th Annual Fine Arts Fair at the Gualala Arts Center on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28, 2017, from 10 am to 5 pm both days. Admission is free.
The Gualala Arts Fine Arts Fair grew out of the Summer Saturday Art Festivals held in downtown Gualala on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Based on numerous requests from patrons and artists alike, it was decided to transform Summer Saturday Art Festivals into a multi-day event and hold it at the Gualala Arts Center.
The Fine Arts Fair began its current two day format at the Arts Center in starting in 2008. This holiday weekend is typically a time when tourists flock to our area of the North Coast to unofficially kick off their summer, and this event gives tourists and locals alike an opportunity to view and buy fine art under the beautiful redwoods on the grounds of the Gualala Arts Center.
Artist spaces will be scattered throughout the grounds of the Arts Center. This year there are expected to be more than are 20 participating artists, many of whom will be creating new pieces during the fair in addition to displaying completed works. There will be a wide variety of art for sale, including jewelry, mixed media, ceramics, photography, hand painted silk, art glass and woodworking.
Gualala Arts is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to promoting public interest and
participation in the arts. All proceeds from the Fine Arts Fair benefit community art programs.
