Carlsbad Village was the center of Art enthusiasts in North County this past Sunday. This was the 19th Annual Carlsbad Art Festival and the tree lined streets of Grand Avenue and State Street were filled with art enthusiasts looking at oil paintings, watercolors, photography, mixed media, new media, classical and contemporary sculpture, as well as artisans who work in the mediums of jewelry, woodworking, furniture and pottery.
As always, this was a juried event with over 100 artists participating and the event attracted 5000 visitors who were enjoying the sea breezes in the Village. Restaurants were all very busy serving locals, tourists and art enthusiasts. Along with the aroma from the restaurants, musicians played to the visitors on the corner of Carlsbad Village Drive and State Street. There were many items for sale and people were seen leaving the area with paintings, sculptures, pottery, and more.
Save the date for next year and do not miss this art GEM in North County. See you next year on August 12, 2018.
