The Westport Downtown Merchants Association’s Westport Fine Arts Festival is celebrating its 40th year on July 20 and 21.
This popular, well-known show will again be situated along the lovely Saugatuck River and will feature original works from approximately 140 artists in Oil Painting, Watercolor, Photography, Mixed Media, Printmaking, Sculpture, Drawing, Glass, Ceramics, Fiber, Jewelry, Wood, and Digital Art.
Locals and families looking for a special summertime event join art collectors from throughout New England and the New York area at the Fine Arts Festival each year for exceptional works of art, live music, unique performances and delicious refreshments from local eateries. The Westport Arts Center will again staff the children’s activity tent, “The Whimsical World of WAC” for hands-on activities for the kids.
From its beginnings in 1973, the show has grown, expanded and moved, but it still has something for everyone with the quaint New England charm and sophisticated shopping of downtown Westport as its backdrop.
