The Cattaraugus County Arts Council Winter Arts Festival at the Lodge at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville is Nov. 19 and 20 and will be an ideal opportunity for artists to sell their work and visitors to begin their holiday shopping. There is a limited number of booth spaces available at this juried arts festival and the early bird reduced booth fee deadline is Oct. 2, so we encourage artists and artisans to register online at myartscouncil.net. Final deadline for all booth registrations is Nov. 1.

The sale will be on the first floor of the main lodge at the Holiday Valley Resort overlooking the ski slopes. Paintings, prints, photographs, pottery, jewelry, and fiber arts are a few of the many original artworks that will be for sale at this juried exhibition and sale. Shoppers are eager to meet the artists in person and find the perfect one-of-a-kind holiday gifts for their family and friends.

Applications are now being accepted for fine artists and artisans interested in participating in this juried exhibition and sale. Go to the CCAC website, myartscouncil.net, then to the Events tab, and the Winter Arts Festival page to find the guidelines and submit your application.
