Again this summer, Gualala Arts will sponsor the
Summer Saturday Art Fests under the direction of Scott
Chieffo. The Festival times are planned for 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
on the Saturdays May 27, July 1, and October 7, which
coincide with the three-day holiday weekends.
Booths and marketplace stands will be set up in the vacant
lot behind the Gualala Hotel, adjacent to the Sundstrom Mall,
with the chance that if there is an overflow that some booths
can also be across the street in front
of the Dolphin.
This year, for the first time,
the applications to be a part of this
very successful activity will be
juried. Past participants will be sent
an application and e-mails with a
pdf form will be sent to various local art-related groups. The
application form is also downloadable from the
Applications must be accompanied by
slides or prints of artwork, plus slide, print or drawing of booth.
For questions about slide preparation, contact Scott Chieffo
at (707) 882-1899.
Artists and vendors are encouraged
to apply as soon as possible. Applications will be juried as
they are received. When the available spaces are filled, no
more applications will be considered.
Each of these festivals brings more than a dozen
artists and artisans to downtown Gualala, where they exhibit
their most recent works. These open-air events allow the
public the opportunity to view and purchase fine art and
quality crafts directly from their creators. A variety of fine art,
photography, ceramics, jewelry, glass, woodworks, and more
will be on display, rain or shine. Cheri Snyder will be the onsite
manager for each of these events.
