“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso
Make your plans to join us the weekend of May 16 and 17 as 100 artists, musicians and purveyors of food tantalize all our senses.
Sierra Madre’s picturesque Memorial Park plays host to the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library 47th Annual Sierra Madre Art Fair. The festivities take place Saturday, May 16, from 9:30 to 6:00pm, and Sunday, May 17, from 9:30 to 5:00pm. Weaving, Oil Paintings, Photography, Ceramics, Watercolors, Mixed Media, Glass, Woodcarvings, Pottery, Jewelry, Gourd Art and Lighting will all be on display and available to be purchased, treasured and passed on to generations.
Here’s an idea: Let’s use the internet to take a sneak peak at a few of the talented artists showcasing their work at this year’s Art Fair. If photography is your art of choice, visit featured artist Kenny Tong’s work at www.kennytong.com, and Steve Felber and George Johnson website www.twoguysartfulimages.com. The brilliant work of Djibril N’Dove can be viewed at www.djibrilndoye.com. Fine art oil paintings can be viewed at www.lindadupas.com and www.prcfineart.com. Examples of our jewelry artisans’ work can be viewed at www.beverlyjones.com, and www.roberttuleydesigns.com. Those interested in ceramics are invited to visit www.venierceramics and www.sassafrasspottery.com. Of course these are but a very few of all the brilliant artists that will be showcasing and creating their works of beauty before your very eyes.
Speaking of creating a special hands-on project for kids, the “Under the Sea Seed and Bead Mosaic” will be sponsored by Sierra Madre’s Creative Arts Group.
Music will offer us a wonderful aural backdrop to the Fair including musicians Jane Fuller, String Planet, Cow Bop, The Tom Corbett Band, Vin Fizz Flyer, the Joel Penner Trio, and Ann Luke.
Olvera Street Mexican Food will offer up tacos, taquitos, tamales, and nachos. The Chinese & Korean BBQ will delight us with chicken, beef, short ribs on a stick and fish balls. Char BBQ will be serving sausages and hamburgers. Flavored ice, ice cream, churros and pretzels will be available from Hawaiian Shaved Ice. KettleCorn and Slushies, and all sorts of drinks will also be available. Sweet breads such as banana, pumpkin and zucchini will be available on Saturday, and the Rotary Interact Club will be offering their famous cupcakes on Sunday.
Thank you for supporting worthy cause. All proceeds benefit the Sierra Madre library helping to support programs, services, and equipment. We would also like to thank our media sponsor, Pasadena Magazine.
So come join us as we behold artistic beauty through sight, embrace masterful music through sound, and savor flavorful treats via taste. Sierra Madre Memorial Park is located at 222 West Sierra Madre Blvd., 1 long block west of Baldwin Avenue.
