One of the coolest aspects of calling the luxury apartments in Antelope home is the fact that you’ve got access to all the great events that are going on in nearby Sacramento. Need an example? You needn’t look further than the upcoming Sacramento Arts Festival, which is all set for a riveting three days on October 25th, 26th, and 27th. It’s being hailed as the biggest and grandest iteration of this annual event to date:

“The 22nd Annual Sacramento Arts Festival—the best ever in quality and variety— comes to Cal Expo. The festival features 225 of America's best contemporary craftspeople and fine artists offering more than 15,000 original works. The event has become not only the premier art and craft show in Sacramento, but is also developing into one of the top art festivals in the county.”

What can you expect from this truly spectacular showing of fine arts and craft? That’s what we’ll be covering today, as we take a peek at what’s in store at the 22nd Annual Sacramento Arts Festival, and the artists you should be paying attention to when you head to CalExpo.

Highlights From The Sacramento Arts Festival

So who’s notable on that expansive list of 225 featured artists? They’re all amazing talents, but if you’re a fan of painting, you’ll definitely want to check out Paz Winshtein. The Israeli-born, Los Angeles-raised artist cites greats like Salvador Dali and Hieronymus Bosch as his influences, and you can see the dynamic surrealism shining through in his distinctive works, that combine the otherworldly, macabre, and even slices of everyday life.

If photography is more your speed, though, you’ll likely be fascinated by the works of Dana Echols. The self-professed nature lover takes an intimate look at mother earth through his lens, culminating in an array of stunning macro shots, breathtaking landscapes, and “blink and you miss it” shots of wildlife in their natural element.

Ceramics will also be well-represented at the Sacramento Arts Festival, through prolific artists like Michele Fisher. Combining her training as a psychotherapist with her natural creativity, she’s taken to molding clay into highly-stylized representations of the female form. It’s dramatic, it’s edgy, and for fans of figures, it’s right up your alley.

And of course, there will be plenty of other media on display at the Sacramento Arts Festival, from prints to sculpture and beyond, so be sure to make some time in your schedule to get down there and check it all out for yourself.
