After this dreary week of rain, what you need is sunshine and artwork, both of which you can find at the Fairfax Fine Arts Festival. The pairing of neat and captivating art with the fun of walking around outside will be the perfect thing for you or your family.
Make sure to be there when Grand Commons Avenue blooms into an outdoor art gallery full of exquisite pieces of handmade jewelry, unique and never-before-seen sculptures made from metal and stone, and original oil, watercolor, and acrylic paintings. There will also be a variety of photography, glasswork, woodwork, digital artwork and mixed media pieces.
You don’t have to be an art collector to appreciate all that the 4th Annual Fairfax Fine Art Festival has to offer. The variety and beauty of the art pieces on display and for sale will appeal to anyone with an eye for beauty and a mind for discovery. You might also find that perfect statement piece for your home or office.
There will be artists and artisans from all over the country, representing 17 states. In 2012, the Fairfax Fine Arts Festival was ranked the 33rd best fine arts festival in the nation. Come see what all the buzz is about and become a member of the artistic community.
If you need a break from the sun, duck into one of Fairfax Corner’s many restaurants and stores.
