The annual Affordable Arts Festival presented by Ent Credit Union is unlike any arts fest you have attended — all of the art is priced at $100 or less. It takes place outdoors on Sunday, August 28, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Arapahoe Community College. This is the Black Friday of art sales with more than 165 artists from across the nation selling their works in a variety of mediums at amazing prices.
Artists offer a selection of great deals, along with pieces that are normally priced under $100. Don’t let the price fool you. This is fine art at great prices.
How amazing are the discounts? Amazing!
This year, a Carolyn Young painting originally priced at $2,195 is $100. And a $850 original mixed media will be sold for $100. A beautiful necklace tagged at $299 will be on sale for $100 and a resin finished photo that retails for $2,200 is $100.
You’ll find paintings and mixed media, jewelry, glass, fiberworks, photography, metal work, sculpture, ceramics and wood. From the whimsical to the functional to the simply-gotta-have-it, there’s art for all tastes.
While gates open at 9 a.m., many people line up much earlier, so be prepared for crowds. Live music starts at 7 a.m., with a coffee cart, pastries and other surprises for early patrons.
With prices like these, you’ll won’t mind hanging out and have a ton of fun.
Admission is $12 online or at the gate (children 12 and under, FREE) with proceeds going to the Arapahoe Community College scholarship program.
