Artists in Action Festival
Artists Demonstrating during “Artists in Action”
The sidewalks of historic downtown Weaverville will come alive with artists and activities during the annual ARTISTS in ACTION FESTIVAL which will be held on September 16, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We are expanding the event and currently signing up artists and music to line the street from the Court House to the Highland Art Center. Download the PDF to sign up and save your space.
2016, we had Live Music, Kids activities, an Art Raffle & 50/50 Raffle, and more than 35 fascinating artists who will demonstrate their skill and discuss their craft. Among them will be award-winning artists including metal sculptor Kelly Corrigan, Redding’s Lyn Farrar doing glass fusing, Julie Bullock of Doodlebug Designs demonstrating how to paint glass with alcohol ink, watercolorist Karen Hammer, pastel painter Hal Oleari, Jason Richards demonstrating silver-smithing, wood carver John Gray, Ceramic artists John Garrett, Keiki Yamasaki, and Susan Alexander, Earthdance jewelry, hand crafted Native American art and many more.
There will be many events for children including "Spin-Painting" to create a top, Chalking the Walk, Jewelry Bead Crafts and more.
We will have 2 bands, one at each end of the event (TBA).
And of course, many merchants will provide reasons to explore Weaverville. Look for the signs that will direct you to parking areas.
Enjoy a fast drive on newly paved hwy 299 and you will drop into our 1850’s historic setting, landing in the midst of Artists in Action. Come join us for Family Fun.
Email any questions to Jill Richards, firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jill between the hours of 10 am to 10 pm. (530)623-2760.
This event will be heavily promoted through Social Media, Radio, and print including the Redding Record Searchlight DATE Book (2 issues, each with 1/2 page color ads) with expectations of attracting many art lovers.
