Cottonwood Art Festival wows again

Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, the Cottonwood Art Festival did just that. Last week’s juried collection of creative media included fresh looks, new artists and innovative media not seen previously at the semi-annual event.

Visitors to the event were not deterred by uneven weather that brought drizzling rain and cool temperatures. They were richly rewarded for their tenacity.

Artists exhibited creative talent in 14 categories: 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Digital, Drawings/Pastels, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Leather, Metalwork, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Wood.

Whether visitors were art collectors, admiring aficionados or interior decorators and designers, they were sure to find just the piece to fill that empty wall or niche.

“As a decorator, I often have clients looking for art work that is specific to their home in terms of size, subject matter, and colors. I went to the art show to meet artists and view their work so I will have resources to draw from for current and future projects,” says Eva Hines, interior decorator/owner, Decorating Den Interiors.

The broad scope of art illustrating international influences particularly struck Hines.

“The art show was also a great place to find art that is specific to a certain culture. People are very interested in honoring and preserving their culture.”

Artists in attendance came from throughout the United States bringing a wealth of imaginative concepts.

“In general I found the art show to be very inspiring in terms of getting my own creative juices flowing. It reminded me what can happen when you think out of the box,” says Hines.

Not an art enthusiast? The event also offered live entertainment by local bands, a courtyard with restaurant seating, food trucks, adult beverages and a children’s area. The next Cottonwood Art Festival will be held in early May 2014
