The Arts

This juried art fair presents a variety of mediums including oil paintings, metal sculpture, pottery, jewelry, photography, fiber, glass, leather and more. The artists are mostly Texas-based and join together for this inaugural event to create a really special experience for attendees.



There’s nothing sweeter than hearing the words and music of a Texas singer songwriter and during the day numerous talents take the stage at the Van Go Art Fair. For the inaugural year of this event, each performer is being hand selected to help create just the right harmonious vibe to complement the art exhibit.



Not only will the Van Go Art Fair feature locally-made wines from area vineyards, but the food trucks and culinary offerings are hand-picked to complement the wines. Try the smoked beef rolls, gourmet cheese and meat trays, and much more, plus plenty of choices for the kids.
