With over 2,100 applicants annually, the CCAF hand-selects the best in the biz to showcase at the event and includes a wide variety of pieces from sculptures to photography, paintings to clothing, wood whittling to jewelry welding. 265 local and global artists will be on display this year.
New this year: local artist Nicole Banowetz will exhibit her unique inflatable large-sculptures that came to fruition through the help of 10 students as part of the CherryArts education initiative.
