AVON, COLORADO (July 1, 2009) – The Beaver Creek Art Festival returns August 1-2, 2009, and will once again transform the Village of the Beaver Creek Resort into a first-class outdoor art gallery complete with 200 artists and $15 million in artwork available for sale. Admission is free and open to the public.
 
Located in the Vail Valley, Beaver Creek Resort is a magnificent backdrop and host to the Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival. This nationally ranked outdoor art festival is set-up around the resort and offers visitors a chance to meet with the artists personally, hear what inspires the artists and even commission an original piece of art. The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America. The artistic media represented include paintings, sculptures, photos, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics.
 
The 22nd Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. Prices range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. The event appeals to family and friends as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections. Howard Alan comments, “In spite of today’s economy people are still investing in art because art heals, art soothes; this is art that is handmade in America.”
