Telluride Festival of the Arts
The 2012 Telluride Festival of the Arts will once again delight food, wine and art lovers alike. Culinary enthusiasts and fine art aficionados come together to share a common passion for food, art and entertainment. The Telluride Festival of the Arts is an annual weekend-long, culinary and visual arts event held in Mountain Village. Produced by the nationally renowned Cherry Creek Arts Festival, the Telluride Festival of the Arts hosts national and regional professional visual artists from across the United States in a one-of-a-kind outdoor exhibition nestled in a box canyon surrounded by the majestic 13,000ft peaks of San Juan Mountains.
Highlights of the festival include the signature Grand Tasting and a nationally juried art show featuring artists in 13 different media categories including: ceramics, digital art, drawing, fiber, glass, graphics and printmaking, jewelry, metal-works, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture and wood. The art show is free admission. At the signature Grand Tasting, patrons enjoy the remarkable tastes of local restaurants, breweries, fine wineries and spirits for an evening of culinary and social celebration!
