The ink was still drying on Margery Friedlander’s newest work Tuesday night when she got the call that she had been accepted to the 2019 Sun Valley Arts and Crafts Festival.

As a result, the public will be able to see her latest work featuring mountains and lake that she titled “Mystic Reflections.” She will also have five other new pieces to show, as well as some older works.

“This latest is very difficult to do, more challenging,” said Friedlander, who is no stranger to the Sun Valley Arts and Crafts Festival.

The 51st Sun Valley Arts and Crafts Festival will run Friday through Sunday, Aug. 9 to 11, at the Atkinsons’ Park on Ketchum’s West Eighth street. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The festival is no longer being run by The Center but by Altitude Events Group, which also runs The Center’s Wine Auction. As in the past, the festival will feature a variety of mediums, including glass, jewelry, metal work, mixed media, ceramics, drawing, sculpture, wood, printmaking and painting.

There will be live music from 5 to 6 p.m. Friday and from 4 to 5 p.m. Saturday. Kids can make art in the Kids Activity Area from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day free of charge. And there will be an artist demonstration each day.

Food trucks from KB’s, Smokey Bone BBQ, Wood River Sustainability Center, Sun Valley Brewery and Toni’s Sun Valley ice Cream will have foodstuff for sale.

The festival will feature 125 artists from Idaho and 20 other states picked from more than 400 applicants by a jury of artists and art collectors.

Friedlander will be among at least three local artists.

One of the others is Anne Jeffery, a Bellevue photographer who creates botanical orbs, fantasy forests, muted mood montages, skyscapes and iris pieces by manipulating her photography.  She has art cards, buffs and—just off the press--scarves reflecting her fine art photography. She also just rolled out a new website at https://www.annejefferyphotography.com  in time for the show.

The third is Katie Coppelstone, formerly Katie Flood. An avid horsewoman, the Picabo artist paints some very engaging landscapes. She also creates sculpture, predominantly out of glass.

The Sun Valley Arts and Crafts Festival has long been ranked among the top 100 fine art festivals in the United States. Just recently, it was ranked fourth in the country among arts and crafts shows by Art Fair Sourcebook. It was ranked 20th in the country for arts sales.


Yes, we know that dogs love art as much as anyone. But only service dogs will be allowed in the park, according to park rules.
