Lansdale Festival of the Arts, next Saturday, August 25

This end-of-summer show is a long-running event and it’s one the very first shows I did when I started to sell my work. I am always pleased when this event comes around.

2018 - LFA FLYER

It’s held in Memorial Park just outside downtown Lansdale, PA, and runs from 10 AM – 4 PM. Beautiful location and some of the nicest show organizers ever. Stop by if you are in the area and say hello to me!

Tinicum Arts Festival, Saturday and Sunday, July 7-8, 2018

If it is July it is time for this long-running festival. In addition to the extensive art/craft selection they offer a variety of musical performances, demonstrations, and kids’ activities. Plus an art show in the barn, a silent auction, and book/white elephant sale. You can spend a whole day here, very easily, and maybe come back the next day, too. Just saying.

I’ll be showing my paintings here.

Art-in-the-Park, West Park, Allentown,PA – this Saturday, June 16, 2018.

Next up – one of my favorite shows, and one I’ve been participating in since the 1990’s – Art-in-the-Park at West Park.

The show is held in an arboretum/city park in a historic district. It’s a beautiful location with a bandshell and elaborate fountain, plus many shade-producing trees, of course! If you are in the area this Saturday, I hope you might stop by. I’ll be showing my acrylic paintings.

Mayfair at Cedar Crest College – Memorial Day Weekend

This next weekend, Friday-Sunday, May 25-27, I’ll be at this show in Allentown, PA. It’s a revival of the long-running Mayfair Festival, now sponsored by Cedar Crest College, and to be held on the campus. I am really looking forward to the show and anticipate having a great time there.

Take a look at the website – Mayfair at Cedar Crest – to see the offerings – art, music, kids’ activities, arboretum tour. I hope to have some time to get around to some of these venues myself!

Art show hours are Noon to 8 PM (the overall show closes at 10 PM). Admission and parking are free. I’ll be showing my paintings here. Note – I’ll be in the indoor artists’ section.

Moravian Tile Festival Next Weekend, May 19-20

Yes, it is time for this event once again – a whole show devoted only to tiles and tile work. It’s a favorite of mine, and I’ve posted about it over several years – if you search this blog (use the term tile festival) you’ll get a flavor of what it is about.

You can easily spend the whole day here – there is a wide variety of work to look at. And – the show is held under large tents, so weather is not a factor.

If you are in the neighborhood of Doylestown, PA, stop in and see me!
