Cottonwood Art Festival is a juried show. This year approximately 1000 artists will submit their work for consideration. Jurors will select over 240 artists to exhibit their museum-quality work at the festival. The artists compete in 14 categories: 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Digital, Drawings/Pastels, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Leather, Metalwork, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Wood. All works are museum-quality.

•   Cottonwood Art Festival is a juried show.
•   Each of the artists is there in person to discuss their work, or to talk for a while on a spring afternoon. Meeting the artists and learning about their work are two important things that make Cottonwood Art Festival a truly special event.
•   Cottonwood’s beautiful courtyard/café area borders Cottonwood Lake, the perfect stop to enjoy food, spirits and live music.
•   The lakeside stage will host a variety of local and regional bands.
•   For pint-size Picassos, ArtStop is the festival’s hands-on, interactive children's area with over 100 volunteers, life size paint brushes and activities no child can resist.
