The Stamford Art Festival returns to Harbor Point for a third year July 29 to 30 and will showcase more than 125 artists and artisans chosen from the local and national arts scene.
A juried event, the festival will include paintings, photography, drawings, prints, sculptures, mixed media, jewelry, ceramics, fiber, metal and glass pieces that are all original works and available for purchase in different price ranges.
“Because there are so many new people moving into the area, it is a great opportunity to find beautiful treasures to feather their nests,” said festival organizer Sue Brown Gordon, of Gordon Fine Arts. “It’s also exciting because a lot of artists enjoyed the show and are coming back for their third year.”
There will be live musical performances on both days, gourmet food and homemade desserts as well as free arts activities and demonstrations for children and adults. There will be a “Poet’s Corner” coordinated by Connecticut poet and spoken-word artist Jerry T. Johnson. On July 30 the Farmers Market will be open.
The event, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, will take place on Pacific Street and Harbor Point Road.
