Artists at Work
What's an arts festival without artists? In 2017, we returned to our roots, providing an opportunity for festival visitors to experience art-making up close as you watch artists create in real time. It was such a success that we're doing it all again in 2018!

This is also a chance for the public to engage in informal conversations about artistic processes. And best of all? YOU get to try your hand at it too!

Check back later this summer for the complete "Make It Take It" list, and get ready to "make your own souvenirs"!

Call to Artists - Applications Now Open!
We are now accepting artists and artisans for the 2018 Mountain View Arts Festival. This year's "Artists at Work" program will be held in the Eldon Foote Hall of the beautiful, historic Didsbury Train Station. We provide space for each artist to establish a working station where they will create their art and have an opportunity to meet prospective customers and visit with art lovers of all ages. We hope you will apply to come to this engaging event and join in on the fun!
