Art in the Redwoods



In a typical year, the annual August weekend event would engulf the grounds of the Gualala Arts Center, a 15,000-square-foot performing arts architectural gem nestled in the coastal redwoods, and home to the festival since its opening in 1998. The festival features a host of events and activities, attracting vendors and artists from throughout Northern California along with hundreds of visitors, both local and from afar. At the heart of the festival is the Fine Arts Exhibit, with more than 300 art entries. It takes two weeks of preparation to hang and place all the items, which are judged the night of the Champagne Preview on Thursday evening. More information on our past Art in the Redwoods festivals can be found here.

Beginning in March, 2020 with the spread of Covid-19, Gualala Arts was forced to postpone and then cancel all of our live, in-person events, including Art in the Redwoods. We have, however, carefully re-opened our galleries for viewing and retail sales and hope to return live music and other events to Gualala Arts in the near future. Thank you for your support. YOU make a difference.
Each of our program committees are working to create safe events to a device near you. Check our website for updates, or better yet, sign up for our weekly newsletter, eSketches.
Gualala Arts thanks our sponsors for making Art in the Redwoods possible, and for keeping these Online! events happening.
