Spend the day strolling throughout juried fine artworks, courtesy of more than 150 artists from throughout the United States and abroad, displaying paintings in all mediums and subjects — the 24th Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival runs November 3–5. In addition to a wide variety of paintings, drawings, charcoals and pastels, patrons will find impressive small, medium and life-sized sculptures, bronzes, sparkling hand-blown glass, wood, clay, metal, stone, gourds, one of a kind handcrafted jewelry, exceptional photography and much more.

Sculptor and painter Jacinthe Dugal-Lacriox is the event’s featured artist. Dugal-Lacriox has studied the arts for nearly 20 years and the human body and its movement is her principal source of inspiration. This master sculptor allowed herself to excel in the realistic representation of the human form before allowing herself to explore a more unique and vibrant way of sculpting.

In addition to the visual art, the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion will come alive with featured musician Teresa Joy and her violin. As the daughter of a world-renowned guitarist, Esteban, Teresa is sure to mesmerize audiences of all ages with her beautiful music.
