25th Annual Shoreline Arts Festival - Awarded 2nd Place!

I will have two drawings in the  25th Annual Shoreline Arts Festival held on June 27 - 28th at the Shoreline Center.  The Shoreline Arts Festival provides two extraordinary days of music, dance, theatre, literary arts, visual arts, and food, plus the Shoreline Philippine Festival. This creative community event, sponsored by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, is FREE! 

My two works in the juried gallery are She Weeps and Outside In.  The Juried Art Exhibit is one of the highlights of the Arts Festival. It features over 300 artworks from regional artists in 2D, 3D, and photography.  More great news, I was awarded 2nd Place for the work, Outside In!

I have submitted to this show only once before and really liked the multicultural make up of this festival.  Last time we arrived later in the evening and didn't have enough time to see all that we wanted to.  This year, we'll make a point to go early enough!  It's supposed to be a very warm day so hope you can come on out to the Shoreline Arts Festival and see all it has to offer!  Be sure to have a look at the work in the juried gallery as well as the artist marketplace, music, theatre and food.  There is so much to see and do for the whole family!  Hope to see you there!
