Whew getting ready for such a big outdoor art festival can be a bit overwhelming but it’s worth every minute of prep time. As an artist, I’m extremely blessed to have such an event minutes from my studio.

What I really love about the SAM is that its primary focus is original fine art (no reproductions are allowed) by local Denver area artists.
I know I say this every year and sure I may be a bit biased but given the number of artists (over 180 booths!), range of subject matter (from traditional to cutting edge), affordable prices (my small studies start at $5), quality of art (many artists like myself also show in galleries)—I truly believe it’s one of the best art festivals in the county.
In addition, there are demos, music, and art activities for the young ones. The only festival negative is that I wish I had more time to shop the festival myself! Oh and sometimes the weather is odd for early June…
Last year for example it was a bit toasty—almost 100 on Saturday --but so far the forecast it looks pretty nice—in the 70’s. As always, I’m really looking forward as always to seeing friends, my fellow artists, and meeting everyone who stops by.
Hope to see you there! Happy art collecting—and to my fellow exhibitors (including one of my students) I hope you all have one of the best shows yet!
