3rd Annual Downtown Frisco Green Art Fair : July 2-3, 2011

Standard

This weekend (July 2-3, 2011), Howard Alan Events proudly presents the 3rd Annual Downtown Frisco Green Art Fair in Frisco, Colorado.

An abundance of color, a myriad of mediums and the country’s leading artists characterize Frisco’s premier juried summer Green art event. The 3rd Annual Downtown Frisco Green Art Festival, slated for July 2 – 3, 2011, returns to Main Street and will transform this popular retail and dining destination into a first rate outdoor art gallery featuring original paintings, life size sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics with prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures.

This two day green art fair allows each artist to showcase one piece of art created in an environmentally sound process. The artist must incorporate either recycled or repurposed objects into their work. The featured green artwork should serve to inspire and encourage environmentally friendly practices that will not only benefit the community but our ecosystem.

Admission is free and open to the public. Times are Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. The navigational address is: 304 Main Street, Frisco, CO 80443.

Here are some of our artists who will be able to meet this weekend:

Karen Button: Painting

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Karen Button. Karen is considered one of the area’s most creative talents studied at Loretta Heights College in Denver, CO as well as at Allens Lane Art Center in Philadelphia. Deriving inspiration from her surroundings in the enchanting Black Forest of Colorado, Karen Button’s artwork both captures and subtly reveals a glimpse of the bare essentials and timelessness that are reflective of, God’s creative work in motion. You can view more of her gorgeous paintings HERE.

J.P. Garner: Mixed Media

Next, we have J.P. Garner. J.P. was born into a military family and traveled extensively throughout his childhood. After leaving home, He continued traveling throughout Europe and Asia. In Asia he grew to appreciate the simplicity of line and color in oriental furniture and architecture. A lifetime of travel exposed him to a rich diversity of culture and art. Although, J.P. holds graduate degrees in Psychology and a doctorate in Theology, he is a self taught artist and metal smith. He has a beautiful website that you can check-out HERE.

Lynnette Moody: Clay/Mixed Media

The final artist we would like to introduce to you today is Lynnette Moody. Lynnette is a self taught artist with works in galleries and collections worldwide. An ex-emergency room nurse with a short attention span,her art career began whenshe needed a pot for the fireplace hearth in her new home. She bought some clay, a book and a kiln. It got seriously out of hand after that. You can learn more about this artist HERE.
