Admission is free and open to the public. Times are Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. The navigational address is: Mill St & Durant Ave., Aspen, CO 81611.

Here are a few artists you can expect to see at the show this weekend:

Paul Farmer: Jewelry

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Paul Farmer. Paul will be joining us from Scottsdale, Arizona. His gorgeous jewelry collection includes: pendants, necklaces, earrings, rings & more. The intricate detail on all his work is exquisite! If you have a passion for jewelry, then his booth will be a must see for you! You can learn more about this artist HERE.

Anthony Grant: Paintings

Next, we have Anthony Grant. Anthony is a self-taught representational and expressionist artist of over 30 years. He loves painting life around him as he dives into the unknown. Simply following where hid energy and curiosity take him shows his expression. He is currently working on a new series of aerial landscapes in oil on canvas that uses his love of abstraction and geometry. While his goal is celebrating his love of human creativity, his head is often in the clouds and that is reflected in much of his recent work. You can view more of his original work HERE.

Blase Mathern: Wood

The final artist we are going to share with you is Blase Mathern. As an artist working with fine wood, Blase strives to create uniquely beautiful works that blend form and function. Each piece is a combination of his own designs which reflect architectural elements that peak his interest. Every project starts with a mental image. Visualization is like his sixth sense. Blase lets his “mind’s eye” direct each project as the design evolves in order to maximize form and function. You can view more of his stunning work HERE.

You will be able to meet these artists mentioned above along with 150 of the nation’s finest artists at the art festival this weekend. We look forward to seeing YOU there!
