The Yountville Arts Commission would like to extend an invitation to you to join us for the largest Visual Art Event in Napa Valley, the 6th annual Art, Sip & Stroll on April 28, 2018. Beautiful Yountville, in the heart of the Napa Valley, fills with artist’s booths on this exciting day.

Yountville Arts is inviting local up and coming artists to apply to be juried into our ARTIST INCUBATOR SPACE. The INCUBATOR SPACE is new this year and gives an opportunity to local Napa County Artists who have never participated in a professional show to display and sell their art and engage with attendees to gain exposure. A 10’x 30’ space will be set up and shared among 6 up and coming artists. Each artist will receive a 2’x2’ table (Card Table Sized) and adequate space to display art on easels.

We are open to all mediums; painting, photography, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, and more. The INCUBATOR SPACE will be located in an outdoor location along Washington Street. The planning committee will assign the site for the INCUBATOR SPACE.

Artists are responsible for their own sales and retain 100% of their proceeds.
