One of the highlights of the fair is the opportunity to meet the artists behind the works. Engage in conversations about their inspirations and techniques, and perhaps find the perfect piece to add to your collection.

On Sunday, don’t miss the chance to see NSAL faculty member and portrait artist Lisa DePinto in action. Lisa will be on-site painting quick oil portraits, providing a unique opportunity to witness her artistic process firsthand and perhaps even take home a personalized piece of art.
