19 Apr Smiley Park Will Become a Gallery for RAA’s Art in the Park
Artists will be hanging their masterpieces on pegboards, A-frames, and trellises. Glassware, pottery, wood crafts and jewelry will be set out to touch. Easy-Ups, canopies and umbrellas will add color and shade. It must be Art-in-the-Park time again!
Open Mother’s Day weekend, May 12 & 13 from 9 am to 4 pm., this is Redlands Art Association’s semi-annual outdoor sale. About 50 community artists and craftsmen will exhibit and sell their work in a variety of media at Smiley Park, which runs beside the Police Annex (old City Hall) on the corner of Vine and Orange Streets, downtown, Redlands. Sandy Davies, from the Redlands Art Association says “This is the best place to find original art from artists you can get to know. And don’t overlook the small pieces of art. I was pleasantly surprised to find a small watercolor in a friend’s motorhome!! She said it made her traveling home more like a real home.”
A Refreshment booth will offer light snacks and a variety of beverages. Sponsored by the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, their proceeds will fund community projects.
