This weekend’s Dove Mountain Art Festival promises to deliver a memorable experience to all of those who visit. Free and open to the public, the event offers one-of-a-kind pieces from more than 40 juried artists from around the nation.

Art of all mediums, including paintings, sculpture, glass, photography, drawings, jewelry, fiber, wood, ceramics, mixed media, and furniture will all be available. Prices start at $10.

The festival will take place Oct. 15-16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Shoppes at Tangerine Crossing, on the northeast corner of Tangerine and Thornydale. Admission and parking are free.

Throughout the weekend, art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to see the masters at work with several artists hosting interactive art demos and educational booth chats. Participating artists will showcase their talents and educate festival-goers about their works of art.

“We have an outstanding and distinguished group of artists participating in the Dove Mountain Art Festival. I’m confident that patrons visiting the show will be very pleased with the quality of art available,” said Matt Bowman, owner of Bowman Productions, producers of the event.

In addition to the art, the festival offers live music and fun art activities for kids, as well as food concessions by Fruit Shack Smoothies, Hometown Kettle Corn and Funky Monkey Concessions.
