Last year, we continued to host a quality art festival with amazing artists, dedicated volunteers, and live music. We added an art activity for teen/adults in addition to the children’s art activities. The weather was very cooperative and many artists were happy with the day. 

From our artists:

Very well-organized and publicized. A very positive art show!

 

Volunteers and staff do an amazing job, and the food is excellent. 

We hope you will join us this year.

Congratulations to these Winners of the Reinbeck Art Festival Drawings!

Standard

The 3rd Annual Reinbeck Art Festival on Saturday, September 27, drew people from all over Iowa. The weather cooperated, and for the first time artists were able to set up outside as well as inside. A few lucky art patrons were winners of art donated for the doorprize event and the Facebook drawing. Congratulations to these winners: John Kelsey of Gladbrook won watercolor painting “Winter Wonder” by Marion Boyer. Lisa Anderson of Reinbeck won watercolor painting “Hummingbird” by Joyce Wild. The winner of the Facebook contest was Royce Hickie of Marshalltown. She won “Pinwheel” a letterpress print by Julie Russell-Steuart. All the artists are volunteers with the Reinbeck Art Festival.
