This is the weekend (May 25-27) to celebrate the arts at The Annual Paso Robles Festival of the Arts. I went to the “Don’t Feed the Artists” discussion in the library conference room this afternoon, but the main events are still to come tomorrow at City Park, and they are free to attend. Don’t miss them. Bring the kids and they will be exposed to fun art activities in their own corner of the park.
Here’s a sampling from two art events at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles you shouldn’t miss. You need to get in before April 29 to see “California Backroads and Kindred Spirits,” landscape paintings by Sheryl Knight and Linda Mutti, and also “Gardens,” with many media, in the Paso Robles Art Association Gallery.
If you were unable to attend the 2011 Paso Robles Festival of the Arts, come along with me and see some of what you missed. Even I couldn’t see all of it. Even if you were there, your experience could have been totally different than mine, since there were so many choices of activities, and so much to see.
Walk around with me a bit at Templeton’s 2011 Day in the Shade in the park where we will see some of the arts and crafts some talented people have created to offer for sale. Featured here are Designs by Helene, Dan Shattuck’s Recycled Art, and the glass art made from recycled bottles made by Rachel Tamagni. You will also see and hear Alicia R. Broussard, the vocalist for this event, set up and warm up before the official performance time.
Come along and share my experiences at the opening reception of the Studios on the Park “Just Sweet” Exhibition on Friday night, February 5, 2011. I saw great paintings and other works of art, learned about encaustic painting and photography from Heidi Franscioni, talked with Sally Tippman and other artists, and got videos so that you can hear those conversations and see some of the paintings. You can also hear the Love Notes sing.
