The artists compete in 14 categories: 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Digital, Drawings/Pastels, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Leather, Metalwork, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Wood.
The featured artist is chosen to represent Cottonwoods marketing pieces, including t-shirts and posters. More information on the artist and his work can be found on our Featured Artist page.
Cottonwood isnt just about the art, though. The festival also features local bands who perform the best in rock, country, jazz, blues, swing and folk. Be sure to check out the courtyard, where you can sit in the shade by the lake and relax while you enjoy the music. Food and spirits are also available in the courtyard. The beautiful atmosphere and ambience of the courtyard is created and designed by Donal McKinney, owner of Green Sculptor.
ArtStop is the childrens area at Cottonwood. By heading across the bridge our pint-size Picassos will enjoy a wide array of art and craft activities. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to create a sculpture hat from scrap, design a masterpiece in plaster, add to an enormous collage, or practice their hand at sculpting clay on a real potters wheel.
Whether you are shopping for art, listening to music, enjoying the outdoors, or making art of your own, Cottonwood has something for you.
