Autumn & Art 2020
This is now a virtual/at-home event.
The dates for this event have already occurred, please check back again for new dates.
2020 Autumn & Art at Bradley Fair is celebrating 11 years! The festival normally brings over 100 artists from 22 states (including 31 Kansas artists) to Wichita for the city’s premier juried fine-art show and sale.
Due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditionally alfresco fine-art event will instead be presented online, and will still include the opportunity to shop for art from fine artists and a virtual opening night Patron Party. During festival hours, attendees can visit artists’ booths virtually to browse and buy the works for sale, and even talk with them via video chat. In addition, attendees can enjoy a variety of entertainment, including music, dance, theater, artist demonstrations, mixology tutorials and educational videos throughout the weekend.
One of the most popular elements of Autumn & Art is the Opening Night Patron Party. This event will be transformed, packaged and delivered to your door as a beautifully-appointed party-in-a-box with gourmet food from Bella Luna, Newport Grill, and YaYa’s EuroBistro; a choice of wine, beer and spirits or non-alcoholic beverages; exclusive entertainment; and Patron gifts, including a limited-edition face mask and a poster of this year’s Featured Artwork. Wine and whiskey pulls are available as an add-on. The Patron Patio Party-in-a-Box is $100 per person. Proceeds help cover the cost of Autumn & Art.
Friday - 6-9pm
Saturday - 10am-7pm
Sunday - 10am-5pm
Michael and Mary Ann Holmes of Prairie Village—also known as M. Robinson—have been selected as the Evergy Featured Artist team. A poster of the Holmes’ Featured Artwork, “Opening New Doors” (pictured), will be available for purchase at The Frame Shop in Bradley Fair and at the online festival.
