Its reputation reflects the incredible artistic talents of the national and international artisans that attend the event coupled with the extraordinary support from the residents of the Westhampton area and the thousands of visitors that attend the festival each year. One of the most unique aspects of the Westhampton Festival of the Arts is the rare opportunity to meet and interact with the artisans. Whether casual art buyer or avid collector, attendees will have the opportunity to learn how each artisan came to their art form, how they were trained and how they are inspired.
Visitors to the festival can explore the world of art in the breathtaking creations of painters, jewelers, photographers, sculptors and woodworkers and purchase spectacular original works by artisans working in glass, ceramics, fiber art, metalwork and mixed-media.
The Westhampton Festival of the Arts is directed by Paragon Fine Art Events, one of the East Coast's premier organizers of fine art festivals. The festival runs Saturday, August 31, 10-6 and Sunday, September 1, 11-6. Located on the Great Lawn across from St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Main Street in Westhampton Beach, admission and parking is free.
