Sierra Madre Library Art Fair this Saturday and Sunday

Brush aside those mundane weekend activities; don't paint yourself into a corner. Instead, draw your family to the Sierra Madre Library Art Fair this Saturday and Sunday, May 1st and 2nd. Admission is free. And the eyes will definitely have it as they feast on works of art in a visual medley of colors, sizes and shapes.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library this artistic high point of the spring brings together 100 artists for a picturesque weekend in Memorial Park. Our invited artisans will craft their specialities including Photography, Jewelry, Ceramics, Pottery, Watercolors, Gourd Art, Woodcarvings, Mixed Media, Glass and Oil Paintings.

Our featured artist, David Darbyshire is a longtime resident of Sierra Madre. David paints with oil and watercolor and draws with pencil and ink. His subjects are seascape, landscape and still life and aviation art is of great interest to him. Visit his website www.flightgraphics.com to see a wonderful collection of his aviation art works.

As you stroll through the park your aural senses will take pleasure in a variety of musical Acts. And your taste buds will be tantalized by several culinary virtuosos. Activities for kids and the very fact you can take the Art Fair home by purchasing works of art round out what will prove to be a memorable weekend.

And remember, your participation and support of the Art Fair supports the worthiest of causes.our public library. You enable us to add new acquisitions, collections, and support library services and programs.

So, set aside Saturday, May 1, 2010, 9:30 - 6:00pm. And Sunday, May 2, 2010, 9:30 - 5:30pm. Memorial Park is located in Sierra Madre at 222 West Sierra Madre Blvd. It's one long block west of Baldwin Avenue.
