Affordable Arts Festival’s 2nd holiday online sale Nov. 19 & 20

With artwork worth thousands priced at $100 (or less), the popular festival will offer great deals for gifts while raising funds for scholarships

After two very successful online shows in 2020, the Affordable Arts Festival will bring its great art deals to the Holiday shopping calendar. Due to overwhelming requests from art patrons, the 2nd annual Holiday online sale will happen on November 19th & 20th. There will be over 65 artists offering their art online at the ever-popular prices of $100 or less for shoppers. Art patrons will be able to shop for these deals from the comfort of their own homes, with most artists offering to ship

Artwork worth thousands of dollars will be priced at $100 (or less), as some of the state’s (and nation’s) most renowned artists are clearing their studios to make room for their newest creations. Great deals on art have made the Affordable Arts Festival one of the top shows in the country for the last seven years

All of the artists are listed on a website set up just for this event. Admission to the site will be $12 (same as the ticket price for the live festival), with proceeds from ticket sales going to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation to fund scholarships; close to $200,000 in scholarship money has been raised
to date. Patrons can find art they like and contact the
artist directly to shop on their site. Info on how to get tickets online is posted on the festival’s website (www.

“For years, we have been known as the ‘Black Friday of Arts Festivals,’ so it’s great that we can be part of the holiday shopping fervor. Our patrons can find incredible artwork from professional artists for less than $100.” said Jim DeLutes, who has been Founder and Director of the Affordable Arts Festival for the last ten years. “Also, for ten years, the live show was great for the local patrons, but now art lovers all over the country can take part. After the success of our online shows in 2020, we felt a holiday show would be a great way for our patrons to have fun shopping for gifts and for themselves. They get great deals, and we continue our fundraising for students at Arapahoe Community College, who are always grateful for the financial help.”

The online market will have 65 outstanding local and national artists making their work available for 2 days at great prices. Artists and patrons will have more time to work together online. The live festival in August is only 6 hours long, but Holiday patrons will have two days to shop and interact with the artists.
