August 13-16, 2009 - Art in the Redwoods Festival returns to Gualala Arts Center for the 48th annual event.

The heart of the Festival includes close to 400 works of art throughout the 15,000 square foot community built Arts Center completed just ten years ago. The exhibit includes sixteen media categories. Most of the art is for sale; some is exhibited just to encourage a new thought or viewpoint.
The Festival really gets rolling on Saturday, August 15, from 10AM to 5PM for the fine art exhibit along with live music around every corner. The grounds are filled with artist vendor booths offering jewelry, ceramics, wood, tiles, fiber arts, photography and additional art works. Admissions are $6 for adults, children 17 and under are free both days. Sunday the Festival starts at 10AM and closes at 4PM.
