The Cherry Creek Arts Festival weekend event is a world‐class and award‐winning celebration of the visual, culinary and performing arts, and enjoys a usual attendance of 350,000 visitors over the course of the three‐day event. The CCAF’s year-round 501c3 non-profit mission is to provide access to art experiences and to support art education.
The Cherry Creek Arts Festival gives art patrons the rare and special opportunity to meet and talk with international juried visual artists, sample fine cuisine, enjoy live musical performances and artist demonstrations. The festival also offers families with children interactive “ARTivities” so they can create art, too.

Artists show their artworks in their own gallery tents and attend the exhibit themselves
in order to answer questions, explain their techniques and talk about their thought processes. (pictured above: Marty Hulsebos and his p
hotographic works)
Now we will take a stroll through the artists' tents and show some of the artworks from this year's exhibition.

Art is about keeping
the "wonder of childhood"

within us all,
for Collectors,
for the Artists,
and most appropriately
for Children

as they grow.

FOOD
Cucumber Aspic
for Summer!

Ingredients:
2 large cucumbers, peeled and seeded
2 3-ounce boxed lime-flavored gelatin
2 1/4-ounce envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons onion juice
Hot sauce to taste
1 16-ounce container sour cream
4 small ribs celery, chopped fine
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
4 medium limes, juiced

Instructions:
1. Grate cucumbers using the medium holes on a box grater. Transfer cucumber to a colander and let drain for at least 30 minutes. Press cucumber lightly to release additional liquid.

2. In a large bowl, combine gelatins and salt. Add boiling water, vinegar, onion juice and hot sauce. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Refrigerate mixture until it begins to thicken and gel but has not set.

3. Fold sour cream, celery, cucumber and 1/2 cup of the mayonnaise into mixture. Transfer mixture to a 6 1/2 to 7 cup ring mold that has been lightly sprayed with vegetable oil spray. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.

Until later,
Jack

  1. Hope this place turns out good. It’s great that this venue offers services such as catering, lighting, tables and chairs, table linen and parking. I am here to choose event space NYC for my event, glad to know that they do not put any restrictions regarding music played.
