Spring Art Festival
Visitors can immerse themselves in art during Canyon Road's annual Spring Art Festival on Friday & Saturday, May 10th & 11th. Formerly called Passport to the Arts, the event features exceptional exhibits, artist receptions, and art demonstrations that will take place on the iconic road - long hailed as one of the premier art destinations in the world.
CRCA will feature a large variety artists and mediums:
Andree Hudson always draws a crowd as she paints her large-format stylized acrylic paintings,
Lydia Piper and Doug Gillis will demonstrate the kiln-formed glass techniques,
Kari Rives will create a clay animal in her highly expressive style,
Tobi Clement, member of the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico, will delight with her many-colored pastel landscapes.
Jenny Wilson will demonstrate acrylic on paper technique for her peaceful and rich landscapes,
Kelly Ormsby is always a popular draw as she makes custom jewelry throughout the day.
“The Canyon Road Spring Art Festival is a unique and exuberant event as it showcases the extraordinary talents of artists while they create LIVE ART in one exhilarating day, in one of the most exceptional art districts the world has known,” said Nancy Ouimet, Board Secretary of the Canyon Road Merchants Association. This is a rare opportunity for art lovers to be involved in the creative process of artwork they may soon add to their collection.
Advance previews of artists’ work will be held on Friday evening at many of the district’s 100 fine art galleries and sculpture gardens. Artists will be in attendance at receptions, and new exhibits by both established and emerging artists will be on display. Late night entertainment and dining are available at the road’s renowned restaurants.
