Art Experiences

From the artists on exhibit to some fun activities for the kids with Open Studios Mobile Art Lab and a variety of downtown attractions, you'll find plenty for the little ones (and not so little ones) at the fest.

Poster Artist

The 2023 featured poster artist was Taylor Clendennen, who joined us from Houston Texas!

Taylor's work is inspired by the world around her and her love of color. Her encaustic paintings are comprised of many colors, textures, and other media that tell a story through abstract and nature imagery. 

It's not too late to pick up a copy of the commemorative poster from our partners at Art Source International (1237 Pearl Street).
