Spring 2016 Art on Palm Show will be held on Saturday June 18th!!
We’re thrilled to announce that Art on Palm, Altadena’s art and fine craft festival will take place on Saturday, June 18th, 2016, 9:30 am – 5 pm, at 1421 E. Palm Street, Altadena. Over 40 artists and musicians will exhibit and perform at the Art on Palm, in the secluded canyon of ‘Wild Wood Park’ and raise funds for the Creative Arts Group of Sierra Madre. This is a super dog- and kid-friendly event not to be missed!
The show and sale features ceramics, collage, encaustic, glass, jewelry, photography, textiles, pastels, basketry, woodworking and more. Participating new great artists are, Hannie Goldgewicht, Leo Gotlibowski, Piri Mee, and Jolana Pineda. And, perhaps the best of all, students of Pasadena High School’s Creative, Arts Media And Design (CAMAD) will exhibit their work for the first time, alongside the seasoned participants.
Under a canopy of ancient oaks, these wonderful artists will display finely crafted works, from elegant wearables to memorable gifts. “Art on Palm really does have something for everyone”, states Mary Jane Elgin, the event-s co-founder. “Art on Palm promotes gifted local artists, rewards a loyal audience with fresh and unique work, and even raises funds for the Greater L.A. Fisher House.”
In prior years Art on Palm raised an aggregate sum of $25,000 for the Greater L.A. Fisher House.
Since 2006, Art on Palm artists have donated a portion of their sales to the Greater L.A. Fisher House Foundation, which provides humanitarian support for hospitalized military personnel and their families. “The Greater L.A. Fisher House acknowledges this generosity. Contributions from Art on Palm help us provide much-needed humanitarian relief to military members and their families during hospitalization at the Westwood V.A”, commented Tim Byk, Founder and Executive Director, Greater L.A. Fisher House Foundation, www.greaterlafisherhouse.org
