The Summerlin Festival of Arts returns to Downtown Summerlin on Oct. 9 and 10, After a one-year hiatus last October.
The outdoor festival, is now in its 25th year, and features the artistry of more than 100 fine artists and craftsmen from Southern Nevada. Also some artists from surrounding states, each artist is selected by a jury of local art experts.
This two-day event is free and set on The Lawn and under the Pavilion at Downtown Summerlin, offers free parking and the usual upbeat and lively atmosphere for each family member.
Danielle Bisterfeldt, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience for Summerlin and Downtown Summerlin, stated “Our 2021 roster includes many popular and returning artists, such as celebrated local painter Niki Sands, jeweler Darren Kensington and photographer Charles Siefert. We had an overwhelming number of applicants this year given pent-up demand for artists to showcase their works. In addition to our returning artists, more than 30 percent of the festival’s artists are new to the event and will bring a new level of interest and excitement. Artists showcasing at the Festival work in a variety of mediums, including oil, watercolor, pottery, sculpture, photography, glass and jewelry — all in a mix of contemporary and classic designs. We are thrilled to see Festival of Arts return to The Lawn at Downtown Summerlin next weekend.”
