27th Annual Los Olivos Quick Draw & Arts Festival

Saturday, August 17, 2013 • 10:00 a.m-6:00 p.m.

Holly is thrilled to be working with Santa Ynez Valley Arts, a committee of the Artists Guild Santa Ynez Valley (a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit), on the upcoming expanded 27th Annual Los Olivos Quick Draw and Arts Festival. Inviting talented people from all over, Los Olivos will once again shimmer in the summer with vibrant creativity! This long-standing, free, signature event, will bring visitors up-close and personal with talented artists. The excitement begins when the featured Quick Draw artists are introduced by MC and artist Jim Farnum, and then released to work on producing a finished piece of art within 60 minutes. This is a great opportunity to observe a variety of techniques! After the Quick Draw, visitors will have a chance to walk around and view the completed artwork, ask questions, and learn more about these featured artists before their one-of-a-kind work is available to the highest bidder through a live auction conducted by Jim Glines.

In addition to the Quick Draw, there will be a variety of artist and artisan booths selling unique items in the afternoon, a silent auction, live music, delicious food, demonstrations, and a special VIP reception where guests can chat with featured artists and enjoy a tasty selection of appetizers and wine in the beautiful shaded courtyard of St. Mark’s In-The-Valley Episcopal Church.

Featured Quick Draw Artists include:
Vicki Andersen, Gwen Cates, Chris Chapman, Ken Christensen, Jim Farnum, Julie Fish, Mark Greenaway, Suzan Hamilton-Todd, John Iwerks, Gary Johnson, Jack Johnson, George Lockwood, Joe Mancuso, Joe Milazzo, Vel Miller, Richard Myer, Cathy Quiel, Luis Ramirez, Camille Renga-Dellar, Ray Sevilla, Marilyn Simandle, and BJ Stapen.
