Tullis and her team rounded up a hundred fine artists to display juried work in jewelry, ceramics, photography, fibers, sculpture, glass, metalworks, drawing, painting, wood, mixed media and graphics and printmaking.
On top of all that art, visitors can enjoy music on the all-day stage, food and drink (including brews by some of Colorados best microbreweries), a Family Art & Play station where kids and families can explore their own creative tendencies, and performances by the Salida Circus.
We are rolling out the red carpet, confirms Tullis. And its in a beautiful location; its on the banks of the Arkansas River in a willow-tree-lined park. The festival takes over Salidas Riverside Park today from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and tomorrow from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; for more information, visit www.salidaartfestival.com.
