Canyon Road Spring Art Festival

Friday and Saturday
May 6th and 7th, 2016

50 Amazing Masterpieces Created in a Day

Immerse yourself in art at Canyon Road's annual Spring Art Festival. Exceptional exhibits, artist receptions, and creative demonstrations take place all weekend on the iconic road - long hailed as one of the premier art destinations in the world.

The festival’s impressive array of alfresco events is headlined by the Artist Slow Draw and Live Auction on Saturday. 53 Canyon Road gallery artists will set up their easels along the historic trail, and each will produce an original work of art in the span of five hours. All of these original pieces will be sold at silent auctions at the galleries during the day and at a live auction at 5pm. You don't want to miss this.

Advance previews of artists’ work will be held on Friday evening at many of the district’s 100 fine art galleries and sculpture gardens. Artists will be in attendance at receptions and new exhibits by both established and emerging artists will be on display. Late night entertainment and dining are available at the road’s unique restaurants.
