Alpine Art Affair
The Alpine ArtAffair returns to Winter Park for its 40th year on Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21, with 80 artists enlisted to display their treasures during the fun social event.
This year’s ArtAffair, located on Highway 40 in downtown Winter Park, will feature a number of local artists as well as non-local artists displaying everything from paintings to decorative word work to jewelry, food vendors, and kids activities.
Some of the artists who will be attending the ArtAffair have been displaying their art at the event for 25 years. The event will also feature new artists this year who are sure to bring some fresh twists to the event.
This year will also feature a raffle for an original Karen Vance piece, a local artist. Tickets are $5 each or three for $10. The drawing takes place Sunday afternoon, though ticket-holders don’t have to present to win.
