Beaver Creek Art Festival returns this weekend
Event has mix of contemporary, Southwestern pieces
Beaver Creek — The 23rd annual Beaver Creek Art Festival returns this weekend.
One-hundred fifty of the nation’s leading artists will converge upon Beaver Creek Village with an eclectic mix of unique and contemporary and Southwestern art, transforming the village into an outdoor art gallery. Admission is free and open to the public.
The nationally-ranked art event is set up around the resort and offers visitors a chance to meet the artists, discuss their art and inspiration and even commission an original piece of art. The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All of the artwork is original and handmade in America. The festival will include paintings, sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics.
Howard Alan Events and some of Hollywood’s notables will join forces in support of the Vilar Performing Arts Center. Proceeds from a screening of the critically acclaimed film, “Local Color,” at the Vilar Center on Saturday, will benefit the nonprofit arts center. Renowned Hollywood writer/director and painter George Gallo (“Midnight Run,” “Bad Boys”) will present his film featuring Oscar nominees Armin Mueller-Stahl (“Shine”), Charles Durning (“To Be or Not to Be,” “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”) and Diana Scarwid (“Inside Moves”) along with a talent-rich cast that includes Trevor Morgan (“ER,” “The Sixth Sense”), Samantha Mathis, plus veterans Ray Liotta and Ron Perlman. This award-winning movie is inspired by Gallo’s own true story of apprenticeship with a Russian master.
