Fine Arts Faire next weekend

The Danville Fine Arts Faire takes place in downtown Danville from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. June 23-24 with art to inspire, art to purchase and sidewalk art created at the event. Musicians will perform on street corners as well as at a stage on Prospect Avenue with country and jazz, blues and romantic ballads.

This is the 16th years for the Fine Arts Faire, which draws 200 artists to display their art for more than 50,000 visitors. Art includes hand blown glass, lush oil paintings, unique jewelry pieces, fabric art, museum quality sculpture and photography. The Italian Street Painting is done by chalk artists on 9-foot by 12-foot squares of asphalt.

The fair always features food but this year Diablo Magazine presents the Culinary Arts Corner for a unique presentation of artful cuisine. Culinary art schools will team up with Danville restaurants and caterers to create "artful cuisine." Each display must be made of at least 50 percent food. The Danville Area Chamber of Commerce will sell fine wines and microbrews in the adult beverage area on Prospect Avenue.

Admission is free with shuttle service from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday at the park-and-ride at I-680 and Sycamore Valley Road, courtesy of Diablo Lodge.
