FESTIVAL OF FUN!!!
3rd Year Anniversary!!!
WooHoo!!!! Art for the People is celebrating our 3rd anniversary with a 2 day Festival of Fun! We begin the Fun! with our 3rd Music is Happening on Friday with Erin & Evan (7p-10pm) and continues onto Saturday (12N-5pm) with 3 artists from 3Ps (Pets, People, & Places) (our current exhibition) who will be sharing their expertise and demonstration of their artwork.
Festival of Fun (part 1) - MUSIC is Happening!
(Friday, Dec. 8th, 7:00-10:00pm)
Erin & Evan are a folk duo from Austin and San Antonio, weaving together intricate vocal harmonies and tight instrumental playing to create a new take on the folk tradition. With distinctive original songs and a few choice covers, Erin & Evan can fill a room with melody, warmth, and heartbreak. They play frequently across central Texas, and they will be releasing their first album in the fall of 2017.
Festival of Fun (part 2) - Art Talk & Demo!
(Saturday, Dec. 9th, 12:00-5:00pm)
The creation of art is mesmerizing & we have three magnificent artists who will demonstrate and discuss what they love to do! Bryan Macilko uses encaustic which is a blend of beeswax and resin (with additional pigment added) to bring landscapes and animals to life. Through the use of scratchboard & tools, Connor Teseny creates texture and images of animals in nature that are based in photorealism. Through Katie Ryan Donohue’s love of animals & nature, she is magical with her talent with watercolors and envelopes a story of art utilizing her experiences & her imagination.
Here we go with our 2nd MUSIC is Happening!
