STAFFORD ARTS FESTIVAL AND MORE!

We've got some exciting news!

 

STAFFORD ARTS FESTIVAL, October 5 and 6

We're approaching the countdown phase, and the anticipation is building for 2024 The Stafford Arts Festival! Our exhibitor list is expanding impressively, now featuring artists from Florida to New York. This year is shaping up to be our best yet, and we couldn't be more thrilled.


The Stafford Arts Festival is sponsored by J-Art Inc., a 501(c)(3) corporation in partnership with the Stafford Museum and Cultural Center.  Please check out our  websites -- J-ArtInc.org and Stafford Museum and Cultural Center.

 

NEW PARTNERSHIPS AND OPPORTUNITIES:

  1. We're proud to announce our collaboration with Virginia Railway Express to offer exciting art opportunities for local high school students at the Stafford Arts Festival. Their artwork will be showcased at The Arts Festival, creating a must-see exhibit.

  2. Another development for us is that we are partnering with the Town of Warsaw to introduce the Northern Neck  Arts Festival. Mark your calendars for the second weekend of June 2025! This additional festival will provide even more wonderful opportunities for artists and art enthusiasts alike.

  3. We're thrilled to announce our sponsorship of Sundays at Caret Cellars, featuring fine art, music, food, and wines from Caret Cellars. These special Sundays will run from May through September starting next year. We haven't established which Sunday yet but will soon.  Stay tuned for updates!

  4. Lastly, there's a strong possibility of one more Arts Festival will be scheduled in 2025. We'll keep you updated as these partnerships are formed.


DREAMER'S MARKETWe're excited to announce one more innovative initiative from J-Art: the "Dreamer's Market," showcasing young entrepreneurs and their artistic creations. This local event series provides a platform for budding artists to display and sell their work.


Dreamer's Market Schedule:


If you're in the area on these days, we encourage you to stop by and support these young creators. You'll have the opportunity to meet these aspiring entrepreneurs and browse a diverse array of art produced by talented youth.


This year, these Markets are local but we are looking to expand them into other areas next year.  If you are interested in starting one in your area, we are here to help!  Just contact us -- Celebrate@J-ArtInc.org.


This initiative aligns with our commitment to fostering creativity at all ages and providing opportunities for artistic growth in our community. The Dreamer's Market is not just a showcase, but a stepping stone for the next generation of artists and will be explained into other areas as we move forward.
