Join us September 8-9!
Treat Yourself to Art at Stanley Marketplace!

Make plans today to join us for the Stanley Arts Festival, a free weekend event for the whole family and features a nationally juried art show with 100 exhibiting artists in 13 media categories, including ceramics, mixed media, digital art, photography, metalworks, drawing and more! 

In addition to the artists, visitors will enjoy children's activities at the Creation Station, interactive art installations, local food trucks and live entertainment.
We’re excited to announce that the Stanley Arts Festival will feature The Peace Tent—an art installation of colorful recycled flagging tape created by artist  Emma Balder Sustainable Arts . This interactive installation serves as a peaceful space, where participants can feel safe and accepted. Visitors are encouraged to contemplate the meaning of community and leave the space feeling a sense of euphoria and unconditional love.

On Sunday at 2 p.m. there will be a Lion Dance Performance throughout the Stanley Arts Festival by the Colorado Asian Cultural Heritage Center! Traditionally, the dragon and lion dance was used to frighten demons from local businesses and communities, and to help bring good fortune to all -- and now to the Stanley Arts Festival!
Artist Spotlight - Scott Hildebrandt
Scott is from Littleton, Colorado, a previous Cherry Creek Arts Festival Award Winner and is a MIXED MEDIA artist in booth 36. "This little guy is an old box camera from the 1940s. People like to collect old cameras and with this one I added a little New York scene. I could imagine someone taking this type of photograph back then. After building a small model of the Empire State building I was able to put a small motor at the base to give the little airplanes motion while they are teasing King Kong."
