Dorland Mountain Arts Colony announced it will hold its Dragonfly Arts Festival from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sept. 30 at Dorland, located at 36701 Highway 79 South in Temecula.
The arts colony opens gates to share art events with the public several times a year.
“I attended the previous open house and discovered that Dorland is an absolutely amazing place with an incredible group of people involved. I was inspired to go home and be creative,” said Lake Elsinore artist Holly Schaffer, in a released statement.
Live music will be provided all afternoon featuring The Tim Moyer Band, Nathan Rivera, Jessie Smith, Joe Gillespie, John Lane, John Quint, Matt Folkmuse Stone and Robert Rankin Walker.
Local artists are invited to come up and paint plein air during the event.
Wine, soft drinks and food will be available. Tour the property, discover the history, enjoy the scenic views and visit with artists. Register to win a weekend at Dorland’s Artist Retreat! A variety of venders will be at the colony with unique art and gifts.
Current artists-in-residence include David Barker a scientist-turned painter from Virginia and Janet Roberts a writer from northern California who recently returned from China and is at Dorland writing about her experiences. They will open their cottage doors to share their work and stories with visitors to the event.
