Hazelwood’s Annual Community Art Fair, Used Book Fair June 7 at White Birch Park
The next Thomas Kinkade or Andy Warhol might be discovered at the 11th Annual Community Art Fair and Used Book Sale on Saturday, June 7, at the Hazelwood Community Center, 1186 Teson Road, located in White Birch Park. Event hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.
The Hazelwood Community Enrichment Commission has been hosting this event over the past decade. One of its many responsibilities is to support the arts in North St. Louis County and to encourage residents to develop an appreciation for artistic expression. This program also provides local artists with a vehicle to use to show off their talent and to sell their artwork.
Individuals, age 16 and over, are invited to display their works of art using oil, water color, acrylic, pastels, charcoal, pencil, and mixed media. They are limited to 10 entries, each displayed on an easel and appropriate for viewing by people of all ages. They can also sell their artwork to interested buyers. Participation guidelines and registration forms are available at the Hazelwood Community Center and Civic Center East.
All entries will be professionally judged in the following contest categories: Landscape/Still Life; Real Life; Fantasy/Science Fiction; and Abstract. Cash prizes, along with blue, red and white ribbons, will be awarded to the top finishers of each category. Winning entries for the 2013 Art Fair may be displayed but will not be judged.
Hazelwood’s Community Art Fair attracts artists from all parts of the St. Louis metropolitan area, including members of the Northside Art Association who meet regularly at the St. Louis County Library’s Prairie Commons branch.
In conjunction with the Art Fair, the Commission will be hosting a Used Book Sale offering a variety of hardback and paperback books at bargain prices that appeal to the young and old alike.
