Summer Saturday Art Fest: Walt Rush jewelry 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 website. 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.
