The 18th annual juried Geneva Arts Fair focuses on art excellence and offers something for everyone -- beginning and avid collectors.

It takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28, in downtown Geneva along South Third Street, south of State Street (Route 38). Admission is free.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The show will feature more than 155 talented artisans selling their original works of art to thousands of art enthusiasts, while offering patrons the opportunity to meet exhibiting artists, learn the sources of their inspirations and ask questions about techniques.

Visitors will have the opportunity to either purchase existing fine works of art or commission a special piece of art unique to their personal tastes. On Saturday, eight "Awards of Excellence" worth $500 each will be presented to our most outstanding 2-D and 3-D artists.

Once again, the expertise and products of Plandscape Inc. will transform the corners of South Third and Franklin streets into a comforting, breathtaking display of foliage and color.
