The Village at Sunriver has become home to one of the area’s premier summer art events. The Sixth Annual Sunriver Art Faire, sponsored by the Sunriver Women’s Club (SRWC), will return on August 7-9. Faire attendance has continued to rise and over 10,000 visitors in 2014 supported not only the Faire but the community as a whole.
The Faire showcases 60+ artists displaying and selling their fine arts and crafts. The work is juried from artist applications, the majority from Oregon and Washington. The medium for the art will include ceramics, glass, jewelry, painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, woodworking and mixed media. This year it looks like there will be a significant number of new artists who are interested in showing at the Faire.
In addition to the juried art, there will be live professional entertainment all three days, an art center for young artists to try out their skills, and food for purchase in the Village. Last year 200 children left the Faire with handmade art. Special events will include the ever-popular Saturday night street dance in the Village, 7-9:30pm featuring the Klassixs Ayre Band.
Over the last four years, the SRWC (a nonprofit corporation established in 1974) has distributed over $150,000 to nonprofit community agencies that meet the basic needs (i.e., shelter, health, food, clothing and education) of families and children residing in the Three Rivers and South Deschutes County area.
Hours are 10am-6pm on Friday and Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm.
