Each year the St. George UT annual Art Festival has become more competitive with countless applicants from a multi-state area. The resulting collection of booths contains painters, photographers, glass makers, weavers, potters, metal crafters, and virtually any form of creative arts you can think of. St. George has become widely known as an "arts" community with various art shows and public displays of art and sculpture throughout the year. The Kayenta residential community just north of St. George has become especially well known for the talented collection of artists who paint, do various forms of craftwork, and display their work in the Kayenta community.
Just a few examples of the kinds of craft work shown at the Art Festival. I don't feel that I can take photos of copyrighted paintings and photographs, so that excludes a large part of the Festival. But these colorful pieces of work are illustrative of the wide variety of wonderful creative works shown.
A Few of the 100+ booths at the St. George Art Festival. The D on the hill stands for "Dixie" since the St. George UT area was referred to as Utah's Dixie in the late 1800s when cotton was grown and a cotton mill processed the cotton crop. The name Dixie has stuck ever since and countless businesses, medical facilities, schools, and other local areas are prefaced with the name of Dixie.
