Family Art Day Introduces Kids to Art
Kids will be able to create their own works of art during Family Art Day at the Festival of Arts, from 12-3 p.m., Saturday, July 19.
Besides the Festival’s ceramic and mixed media workshops, the grounds will be alive with entertainment for all ages with marionette shows, balloon art, face painting and live music.
Parents and children can enjoy an interactive treasure hunt where participants will explore and investigate the art exhibit to answer kid-friendly questions.
Family Art Day is free with festival admission.
Festival Hosts Artists Panel Discussion
“Artists in Their Own Words,” a discussion examining how the arts affect lives and inform experiences, takes place at noon Thursday, July 24, at the Festival of Arts’ grounds.
Exhibitor Lindsay Buchman will lead a panel that includes painter Michael Harnish, mixed-media artist Bruce Burr and jeweler Adam Neeley.
Tickets are $4-$7 for each talk. A $23 Passport to the Arts pass is good for unlimited admission to the three local art festivals.
Artman Gallery Opens New Show
An artist’s reception coinciding with ArtWalk opens “Divisionair,” an exhibit of the newest works by James Verbicky at the JoAnne Artman Gallery, 326 N. Coast Highway,
from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7.
Verbicky’s appropriation of vintage advertising imagery invites viewers to contemplate a culture of media bombardment, while his sense of proportion and color stimulate the senses.
The exhibit runs through Aug. 31.
