Artists at Work
What's an arts festival without artists? In 2017, we return to our roots, providing an opportunity for festival visitors to experience art-making up close as you watch artists create in real time. This is also a chance for the public to engage in informal conversations about artistic processes.

2017 Terms & Conditions

We suggest that artists:

  • Display various pieces of art that show your process - start to finish
  • OR display pictures that demonstrate your creative process
  • Be able to answer questions regarding your art

Above all things, our desire is to showcase that which we already know - that Didsbury, Olds, Carstairs, Sundre, Cremona - all the communities in and around Mountain View County - have an incredible wealth of artistic talent.
