The Nevada Gourd Society is hosting its 6th Annual Silver State Art Festival, September 6-8, 2024 at the Fuji Exhibit Hall in Carson City, NV. This festival is a gathering of over 40 award-winning artists focused on sharing their art with our community. Artists from Nevada and California will be displaying their gourd art, paintings, photography, jewelry, woodworking and much more. 


In addition, there will be art classes for those interested in a hands-on learning experience.

Our goal is to have a fun and educational festival for all who want to know more about the beautiful world of the natural arts.
