Cottonwood Art Festival remains on pause through 2021 but looks forward to a return in the future. In the meantime, follow us on social media and our website as we strive to support our artists and their work. Subscribers of our newsletter also receive curated collections with direct links to the artist.

The festival continues to engage viewers and promote the hundreds of artists that have shown over the years with articles on the website and showcasing on Facebook and Instagram.   Curated pieces are also detailed in the newsletter that feature online Etsy stores, Texas based artists, category specific mediums, seasonal collections, and community updates. Cottonwood Art Festival is dedicated to using existing platforms for the purpose of cross-promoting the artwork that the artists want shared with the public. This collaborative effort is to shine a light on the beautiful creations that are born during these seasons of uncertainty.
