Artist Demonstration area

The Artist Demonstration Area promotes art inquiry and supplements community art education by providing festival visitors with an opportunity to ask questions and chat with artists at work. The Artist Demonstration Area presents artists working with glass, metal, collage, prints, paint, assemblage, ceramics, fiber and computers.  The Artist Demonstration Area also showcases poetry and theater, in an effort to broaden the festival’s artistic scope and range of experience.
