The annual Affordable Arts Festival is unlike any arts fest you have attended — all of the art is priced at $150 or less. It takes place outdoors on Sunday, August 27, 2023, 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 $150. Don’t let the price fool you. This is fine art at great prices.
How amazing are the discounts? Amazing!
John Scanlan has a 40 x 66 photograph of Tuscany — was $3,200 now $150. And not everything is $150. Deborah Stone’s hand-made scarfs were $128 now $38!
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. At 7 a.m. they have a coffee cart and this year the first 200 people in line get a free pass to the Museum of Nature & Science!
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.
