At this community festival, art enthusiasts discover spectacular paintings, life-size sculptures, jewelry, photography, ceramics and more, offering extraordinary art for every taste. More than $15 million in art will be on display, providing visitors with the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind wares and meet the artists behind the work, hearing firsthand what inspires them.
Plus, enjoy a variety of local activities and performances throughout the weekend, including live music, hands-on activities and art happenings. The Art League’s popular Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser returns, featuring 1,400 handmade ceramic bowls and local artisanal ice cream, all for only $15 per bowl.
There is even more art to be found across Union Street at the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
