Our 2015 Western Art Show will be titled California Images & History, allowing western art with a California history connection. California’s one of the most beautiful states in the nation, if not #1, with a rich history and diverse features. By allowing western art that reflects our history, we believe the 39th Annual Fine Art Show will be well received by our patrons, collectors, and the visiting public. More details on the 39th Annual Fine Art Show page.

In addition, on Saturday, April 25, we have planned a major plein aire show at the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation’s campus right here in San Dimas. The 100-acre campus is ideal for this event and is located at the end of Valley Center adjacent to ViaVerde.

The San Dimas Festival of Arts is dedicated to the preservation of the western spirit through the arts via special cultural events and public art. Each spring, a select group of distinguished artists are invited to come to San Dimas for the Annual National Western Fine Art Exhibition and Sale. They exhibit approximately 150–200 pieces of art in various categories such as paintings, drawings, sculpture, and other media, attracting thousands of guests from throughout the region. The festival features seminars, art demonstrations, and there is no charge for admission to these shows.

Each year at its Spring Exhibition, the Festival carefully selects a new addition to its Permanent Collection from an exhibiting artist. The 2014 Festival of Choice was awarded to Cheri Cappello for her Lakota Wedding Dress titled Evening Song. Thank you to our major sponsor San Dimas Community Hospital for helping us add to our collection. Download this PDF from the artist to learn more about the Lakota and the making of Evening Song. The Festival of Choice Collection from 1977 to date can be viewed here.

The Festival of Arts features original art – oil, acrylic, pastel, drawings, and sculptures – as well as reproductions for sale. More info...
