Gratitude is our Attitude!|
The Arts Festival is exactly four weeks away, and when I see our offices buzzing with dedicated volunteers, sponsors, board members, supporters and staff members, I'm constantly reminded by the breadth and depth of the passion surrounding our organization. Words alone could never express my gratitude to all of you for helping make Colorado's Signature Cultural Event, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, a reality and the success that it is to so many.
Adding to that success is without doubt our world-class family of visual, culinary and performing artists. To all of you, I extend my thanks and appreciation for all you're about to do in preparation for your journey to Denver's Cherry Creek North! Safe travels to you and best wishes in your month of preparation.

What's new for 2010: Part 1
103 first-time CCAF visual artists!!
An unprecedented 103 of the 230 juried visual artists for 2010 are
first-time exhibitors at the CCAF. This is particularly
impressive considering the artists were chosen in
a blind-jury process from 2,250 artist applications, making the CCAF one of the
most competitive art shows in the nation. Artistic excellence of original,
handcrafted work is the sole criteria for selection of exhibitors. The only
artists exempt from the jury are the 12 award-winning artists from the previous
year, and the commemorative poster artist from the previous year. Contributing to the
competitive nature and high levels of art excellence are actual artist sales
(in excess of $2.3 million for 2009) and consistently high national festival
and visual artist rankings.
To help kick-off the 2010 Biennial of the Americas, this year's
CCAF will include a Cultural Pavilion featuring presentations, demos and
workshops from Japan, Latin America and Africa. On Saturday, ambassadors from Denver's
sister city, Takayama, Japan, will present events including a Musical Theater
Demo, a Kimono Workshop, and a Sencha Green Tea Service. Sunday will feature
Latin American dance presentations including Folkloric Ballet and Belly Dance
Art. Finally, Janus Student Art Buying Program presentations and African Dance will
wrap up the Cultural Pavilion on Monday.Next issue: additional new features of the 2010 Cherry Creek Arts Festival!
