Today, Kraig is down in Sausalito California for the renowned Sausalito Art Festival. This is Kraig’s second year attending the Art Festival and we know he was really looking forward to meeting new people, showing his art as well as attending the wonderful and well catered Gala Preview Party. We are excited to be back in Sausalito for their Art Festival and hope to meet many new people and see some old friends. We are sure that Kraig will be a success with his phenomenal artwork and interesting personality, we know he will attract the attention of the experienced collector as well as the amateur art lover.
Some information about the Sausalito Art Festival which we found interesting is posted here. We found this information at www.sausalitoartfestival.org.
“The Sausalito Art Festival is one of the first juried fine art festivals in the nation. In the 1970’s, a cash awards purse was instituted. Today, the jury includes museum curators, professional collectors, gallery owners, and art professors.
The Festival is acknowledged as “The Granddaddy” of Outdoor Fine Art Festivals. Under the Chamber’s stewardship, the Festival has seen its greatest growth, gained national recognition as the #1 Outdoor Fine Art Festival in America, and has earned an international standing for excellence in the arts. It is now considered one of the “best” and “most prestigious” fine art festivals in the United States by both Artists and Collectors worldwide.
The Festival is a nonprofit fund raising Event that has benefited every civic and nonprofit organization in Sausalito with over 1,000 volunteers and over 270 of the nation’s top juried Artists. It is produced by a dedicated group of artists and community volunteers.
Today, the Festival draws over 34,000 art enthusiasts, museum curators and private collectors from throughout the world. The Sausalito Art Festival Arts Education Scholarship Fund was established in 1995 to provide educational opportunities in the arts.
The Sausalito Art Festival has always been known as a showcase of local, established, and emerging talent, as well as the place to meet old friends and make new ones. 2010 marks our 58th Anniversary.”
