Apple Blossom Festival Art Show
AWS Apple Blossom Show
2023 Apple Blossom Show
FREE ART RECEPTION
Friday, April 28
Friday - Sunday
The AWS Apple Blossom Art Show & Sale is a fantastic event in every way! Held in the Sebastopol Center for the Arts - in conjunction with the town's weekend-long Apple Blossom Fair - the ABS is a fun event that allows our art to be seen by hundreds of people.
More than 50 AWS artists show, and hopefully sell, to the public at this annual event. A Friday night reception is hugely attended with wine, food, and live music by Steven Radice.
To participate in the show, AWS members must meet requirements for AWS monthly meeting attendance, sharing their art, and bringing food for our potlucks. Additionally, all contribute volunteer hours in order to pull off this big event together.
