Beaver Creek is not exactly roughing it, and the Beaver Creek Art Festival is not your average art festival.
Presented by Howard Alan Events, producer of the nation’s finest juried art shows, the Beaver Creek Art Festival represents original, hand crafted artwork selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. Howard Alan Events' careful vetting process ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the festival.
Boulder mixed-media artist Mayah Sarles uses plaster-impregnated gauze to sculpt and paint stunning, multi-layered hanging pieces.
Visitors can spend time with artists creating their masterful works as all artists will be on site for duration of festival, and guests are are encouraged to engage with the artists and discover the inspirations and processes behind each stunning work.
Now in its 31st year, the annual Beaver Creek Art Festival takes place on two levels of the resort and features more than 100 national and international artists.
The festival is filled with all mediums of fine art.
