INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Incline Village Fine Art Festival will take place this weekend at Preston Field, featuring artists presenting their original work in all mediums of two- and three-dimensional fine art, including paintings in acrylic, oils and watercolors, photography, etchings, sculpture in clay, glass, metal, stone and wood.

Each artist will be present to meet with the public and discuss his or her work. All work is available for purchase.

In addition to fine art, fine crafts will also be presented. Festival attendees will find blown glass, turned wood, semi-precious jewelry, pottery, stained glass, and an array of high-quality crafts.

Numerous local artists will present their work, as well as artists from Arizona, Pennsylvania, Florida and Virginia. Other regional artists include John Manley from Washoe Valley, Karen Hale from Jackson, Calif., Dirk Yuricich from Stateline, Nev., and Lisa Marie Kindley from Grass Valley.

The featured artist this weekend is Delia Bradford from Carmel. Delia Bradford grew up on the mountains of Big Sur, Calif. Both of Delia’s parents made their living as professional artists and provided instruction to Delia at a young age.

Delia’s passion is painting “en plein air,” utilizing the outdoors as her studio where the natural light provides inspiration. She starts a painting by blocking in massive shapes instead of sketching the images.

The detail comes alive with the addition of light and dark colors. Delia has exhibited in many galleries in Northern California.

Delia travels throughout the state displaying her work at art shows and festivals allowing customers the opportunity to meet her and gain insight into her work. Anyone who views her Impressionist landscape and floral paintings realizes her passion and vitality for life and for nature.

Preston Field is located at 700 Tahoe Blvd. in Incline Village. Hours of the event are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 14-15. Admission and parking are free.

The Incline Village Fine Art Festival is presented by West Coast Artists, which, with more than 30 years of experience, is distinguished by its scope of diversity and wide variety of fine art.
