The Park Hill Art Festival is growing! When CCM Events started The Park Hill Art Festival in 2014, CCM worked hard to convince 40 fine artists that Park Hill was a neighborhood ready for its own art festival. Now on the precipice of the 5th annual show, the festival has doubled in size and is ready to emerge as the next great event in Denver. Look out Cherry Creek, Park Hill has arrived! “Having lived in Park Hill for 12 years, I experienced first hand what an amazing neighborhood Park Hill is. It was only natural that it should have its own signature event.” – Darren Skanson, owner of CCM Events.

The Park Hill Art Festival is a juried fine art and fine craft show that will showcase 80 fine artists from Colorado and beyond. The artists look forward to showing their fine oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, and mixed media paintings – elegant bronze, stone, metal, mixed media, and luminous glass sculptures – functional stoneware, raku ceramics, inlaid wood turned bowls – one-of-a-kind jewelry, fabulous silk fabrics – color and black & white photography. All artists will be present to greet you, hear your comments, and answer your questions.
Featured artists include the painting of Carmel Walden (carmel@waldenwatercolors.com), Anthony Grant (anthonyjgrant@yahoo.com), and last year’s poster artist Julie Leidel (julie.leidel@gmail.com), pine kill beetle woodworker Randy Blunt (mtnwoodworks51@q.com), the extraordinary kaleidoscopes of Henry Bergeson (sales@henrybergeson.com) , and the beautiful gold jewelry of Santa Fe artist James Sandoval (contact@traditionspastandpresent14K.com).
