Gualala Arts: Fine Arts Fair Gualala Arts will have a Fine Arts Fair at the Gualala Arts Center May 24 & 25, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It takes place the Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

The Gualala Arts Fine Arts Fair is an intimate two-day art festival held in the small Northern California coastal town of Gualala, overlooking the Pacific at the junction of Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. This unique fair has grown out of what were the very popular Summer Saturday Art Festivals. Based on numerous requests from patrons and artists alike, it was decided to transform SSAF into a multi-day event on a single weekend. This three-day holiday weekend is typically a time when tourists flock to our area of the North Coast to unofficially kick off their summer.

Gualala Arts: Fine Arts Fair Artist spaces will be tastefully scattered along the periphery of the 15,000 sq. ft. Gualala Arts Center. The Center is located approximately a half-mile inland from the coast. In addition to selling work covering a wide variety of artistic media, several artists will be "in action," demonstrating the creation of their craft during the festival.

Gualala Arts is a non-profit arts organization focused on promoting public interest and participation in the arts. All proceeds from the Fine Arts Fair benefit community art programs.
