Biscuits, craft beer, a mani/pedi and lots of great art? Head to the CherryArts Festival at Stanley Marketplace Sept. 15-17 for a look at the works of nearly 100 national juried artists, including 44 Coloradans, at the repurposed retail space. 

The free three-day event, held in the Hangar of the marketplace (once an airport),  will feature 13 media categories including ceramics, digital art, photography, jewelry and wood-work. Exhibiting artists were chosen through a blind-jury process in June; find the full list of participants here.

Be sure to check out CherryArts’ Mobile Art Gallery—an integral part of the organization’s art education program which provides students and communities access to professional works of art year-round—as well as children’s activities at the Creation Station, interactive art and a 15-foot-tall Cherry Sculpture by Colorado local Garrett Brown. You’ll also find food trucks, live entertainment and an Art Brunch featuring great food and take-home art activities. More information about the brunch can be found here.

A portion of the festival’s proceeds will support the Cherry Creek Arts Festival’s 501(c3) mission to spread art experiences and support art education statewide. More information about the festival’s mission can be found here.
