Artist Demonstrations provide a unique way to interact with some of our exhibiting artists in an informal setting. These interactive and engaging demos will again be incorporated into the Festival’s schedule in 2016 and will take place in each artists booth. Tentative schedule:

Saturday, August 6

10:30 |  Kevin Desplanques|  Sculpture  | Booth #147

Kevin uses a stack lamination method to create his wooden forms and then sculpts the final shapes using hand-held abrasive tools.
