2015ArtsFestivalPosterSingle REMINDER: The City of Normandy Park, along with the Normandy Park Arts Commission, will be holding the 16th annual Normandy Park Arts Festival this weekend – Saturday, May 2 and Sunday May 3! The event will be held at Normandy Park City Hall, located at 801 SW 174th Street. In previous years, the festival was held on the first weekend of June, but due to the input of teachers, vendors and artists, organizers have moved the show up a month to kick off the art and festival season. The festival features juried Adult and Children’s Art exhibitions, with categories in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, digital media, mixed media and prints. It also features a children’s activity area, an artists’ vending area and artists’ demonstrations. In the past, vendors renting booths have displayed and sold many kinds of original artwork, including jewelry, pottery, ceramic, woodwork, photography, garden art, painting and drawing, fabric items and sculptures, to mention only a few. “We look forward to our returning artists and vendors and performers, and welcome new folks interested in becoming involved in our arts community,” reads an announcement. “We appreciate those who choose to share their talents by doing demos, and volunteers are always welcome.” You can find more information regarding the festival at the city of Normandy Park’s website here or at the festival website here: www.normandyparkartsfestival.com. You can also contact city hall directly by calling 206-248-7603 and asking for Amanda, or stop by city hall in person at 801 SW 174th Street. Finally you may also email the arts commission at artscomm@ci.normandy-park.wa.us The beautiful poster image above was provided by Kristina Smethers, the winner of the painting catagory for the 2014 festival!]]>
