Salida Riverside Fine Arts Festival 2014
July 19, 2014 to July 20, 2014
Salida, Colorado
DEADLINE: May 2, 2014
Jury Fee: $35.00

The Salida Riverside Fine Arts Festival invites artists to exhibit in this national juried fine arts event. This is the 6th consecutive year and is a select show of excellent and diverse artists, with many returning each year. Previously held in August, the show is now scheduled in July, during the peak of the Colorado Rocky Mountain tourist season.

Salida is located in the heart of the South Central Rocky Mountains and has the distinction of being one of "America's best art towns", according to The 100 Best Art Towns in America, by author John Villani. White water rafting, 'Fourteener' mountain hiking, horseback riding, many excellent area hot springs, world class river fishing and the charm of a small mountain town with 15 art galleries, unique boutiques and venues featuring local musicians make Salida a popular vacation spot. This is the beautiful area of the Rocky Mountains that inspired the internationally acclaimed artist Christo to propose his latest artwork, "Over the River". Salida has been given the Governor of Colorado's "Colorado Art District" designation.

The festival site is located on the banks of the Arkansas River in a picturesque willow tree filled park with lush green lawns in the downtown Historic District. Colorful kayakers, rafters and fly fishermen are just yards away from the festival site and enhance the mood of the festival. The Ampitheater stage will feature the best of local talent entertaining festival attendees and exhibitors.

Denver Arts Festival at Sloan's Lake 2014
August 9, 2014 to August 10, 2014
Denver, Colorado
DEADLINE: April 30, 2014
Jury Fee: $35.00

Everyone in Denver is super excited to welcome this show on the banks of Sloan's Lake - in Denver's 2nd largest city park, Sloan's Lake Park - a perfect location for this national artists juried show. Sponsored in part by Westword Magazine, Denver's popular "go-to" for happenings in Denver, this show is generating a lot of buzz in the 5 surrounding urban neighborhoods!

Sloan's Lake is centrally located about 20 minutes from the foothills of the Colorado Rockies and 10 minutes to downtown Denver. The City of Denver funded a major makeover making it one of the most popular front range recreation locations. The park's busy walking and bicycling paved trail surrounds a 177 acre recreation lake with two large children's playgrounds and grassy picnic areas. Spectacular views can be seen of the Rocky Mountains "Front Range" foothills from one shore and downtown Denver tall buildings from the other. Sloan's Lake is flanked by 5 well populated neighborhoods: trendy Highlands, Lower Downtown Denver (LODO), Lower Highlands, River North and Edgewater.

Nationally acclaimed Amado Pena Jr. is the featured artist and is a big draw for Denverites. This is shaping up to be a "not to be missed" event in Denver - come and be part of the excitement!
