The event is dedicated to the advancement of hand-crafted art. Artists are widely acclaimed and some are internationally recognized. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the artists and learn about their art. Artists are always excited to participate in this annual event and share their art with the community.

Select from wonderful pottery (functional & sculptural or garden), jewelry, wearable fabric art, leather, paintings (includes prints and cards), wood, glass and much more. Every piece of art is unique, hand crafted and one of a kind.

Ceramic artist, Mary Anderson, lost her studio, all her art and her home. On September 14, 2015, the last day of the fire, Mary and her husband Richard, lost 37 years of their lives in a home they built in Calaveras County in the Butte Fire. Unsure after the fire what she would do, Mary’s art has been reborn at her new studio and home in Arnold, CA. Stripped in the fire of all their possessions, art, family mementos gone, Mary created a series of bells as her memorial to their home and land. She will be exhibiting her Dotaku bells, created with clay and glazed with ash from that devastating Butte fire, at the 23rd Fine Arts Festival on November 18-19, 2016.
