Lexington’s Artists Celebrate 300th Anniversary
There is a vibrant artist community lurking in our fair town. “It is not uncommon for artists to work alone,” says artist Emily Passman, “and so we are not always aware of what each other is doing.” This extends to the person in the street as well. Do you know what local artists are creating?
Lexington residents are invited to not only view what is happening, but be an active participant in it at the next 300th anniversary event, LexCelebrate! Incorporation Weekend, March 16th and 17th.
The “arts branch” of this event will appeal to the interests of art patrons, people looking for a new hobby or parents wanting to engage their children in the arts. Local artists are being recruited to demonstrate their craft in the areas of fine arts, folk arts, as well as pop arts.
One of the organizers, Cristina Burwell, reports that one section of the arts area will be dedicated to community art. “Wouldn’t it be fun to get the entire town to have a hand in a community art project? What a great momento of the times we live in!” exclaims Ms. Burwell.
If you or someone you know is interested in sharing their artistic skills on this day, contact Cristina Burwell at email@example.com or refer to the website for more details as well as an artisan sign-up form.
