About 150 artists from across the country will be making their way to Peninsula June 28 to 30 for the first weekend of the 48th annual Boston Mills Artfest.
Being a nationally recognized show makes it a destination for a variety of artists who might not otherwise be present in the area, said Thomas Conti, public relations and marketing manager at Boston Mills Brandywine Ski Resorts.
“In the past five years, we’ve been a top three nationally ranked art show ... which means we have one of the largest selection of artists coming through with large varieties,” Conti said. “These are artists you won’t find at a local art shop.”
Attendees will see a variety of mediums present ranging from woodwork and metalwork to glass, jewelry and wearable fibers.
The show kicks off June 28 with a preview party where attendees can have a first look at the art. The preview will be held rain or shine and is limited to guests 21 and over. The general show begins June 29 and runs until June 30. In addition to the art, there will be live music, food, wine, beer and local ice cream.
To keep options diverse, a new set of 150 artists will fill the festival’s second weekend running from July 5 to 7.
