Artist at Work. Watch and learn how it’s done.

“Artist at Work” demonstration areas will feature local and regional artist creating works of art while interacting with the public.

Demonstrations for the arts lover in all of us.

  • Watch artists at work as they ply their creative skills at our Artists at Work stations.
    • Artists from many disciplines come to RiverArtsFest to participate in our demonstrating artist programs during our 2 day event. We call this part of our event Artists at Work, during which, visitors can get close, observe, ask questions and gain an understanding of the artistic mind and the extraordinary dedication required to produce a work of art.
    • Painting
    • Sculpture
    • Metalwork
    • Calligraphy
    • Wheel Pottery
    • Woodturning
    • Fused Glass
  • For many artists the experience of working in front of the public is rare. To be surrounded by hundreds of people can be an enriching and positive influence on their creativity.
  • Artists are chosen on merit, entry is by invitation only. Artists are given space to work; free from commercial pressure they can relax, enjoy working, and meeting visitors.
  • A selection of artwork is generally available for sale in the area. Come by and check out the action at St. Paul and South Main.
