With more snow in the overnight forecast, I’m happy to have reason to show you this photo I took during last May’s Barrington Art Festival. Puffy clouds, bright blue skies, sleeveless shirts and, yes, Barrington’s 2011 Memorial Day Weekend Art Festival are right around the corner. Do you remember how hot it was during last year’s festival? I do! Now I’m daydreaming….about sunshine and summer fun. (sigh) Ok, I’m back. Anyway, Barrington Art Festival organizers have just started recruiting all “youth” artists who want to feature their work this year.
The company that runs Barrington’s art festival, Amdur Productions, just opened the application process for the festival’s Youth Art Division.
Young artists, from age 6 through 18, are invited to display their own original works and will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you know any young artists with a talent for painting, drawing, jewelry, ceramics, prints, fiber, sculpture, photography, glass or mixed media, let them know that now’s the time to sign up!
The 2011 Barrington Art Festival is again scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, from 10AM until 5PM on Saturday, May 28th and Sunday, May 29th. For more information or to apply for the Youth Art Division, call festival organizers at 847.926.4300, email them at info@AmdurProductions.com or visit their website AmdurProductions.com.
