Advice from Chrissy? If you see something you like BUY IT! I’ve been disappointed many times in the past at this art show! Many art forms will be represented including:
- painting in a wide variety of media,
- wood working,
- sculpture and more.
This is a family friendly event with things for the kids to do including a face painting booth (for a small charge) and a childrens art station sponsored by The Academy of Art in Parker where you create your own art project. Soft drinks, snacks and hot entrée lunches will be sold both days. There will live entertainment in the gazebo both days. The Parker Chorale and an ensemble from the Denver Performing Arts HS will perform on Saturday and Sunday. The Town of Parker, Sunday afternoon concert will be from 1 to 3 pm. This weeks entertainment is The Branders, with a vocally-driven, harmony-laden sound, this upbeat band will thrill the masses with variety of music from old school sweetness to cutting edge country. What is a “juried” show you might ask? Regular craft show allow anyone with the entry fee into their shows, the quality or subject matter of the art nor whether it’s actually hand-made is taken into consideration. A Juried arts and crafts show means that along with having to have your entry fee, your art work is critiqued by a panel of other artists to make sure that the quality and subject matter are both acceptable and that the art is indeed handmade, not something you can buy in hong kong and sell for profit.
