ARTfull day at the Festival

The street painting  painting festival will continue today Sunday.  It’s just awesome to see the beginnings of the chalk paintings, the festival is now in it’s  20th year.  An Artfull day in the true sense of the word.  Art was not just seem on the streets of  Lake Worth .   There were so many adjunct ways to enjoy art.   Private parties showcasing the talent of a favorite artist, where neighbors in the Lucerne bldg. opened their adjoining units. Galleries are open  DSCN6085along with DSCN6135 DSCN6128demonstrations and of course en plein air painters spotted throught out the crowd.  They paint and sketch what they see.  DSCN6045 The Hair Salon on Lucerne and L st. next to the Art League offers face painting and ” have you tried a bit of fuchsia in your hair, now is a good time“.      You won’t be starred at, not in quirkey Lake Worth.    DSCN6099     DSCN6040 DSCN6046 DSCN6037                                                                                                                                  The Palm Beach Cultural Council’s current exhibit open to visitors showing photography by Steve Horan. steve-PBCC-show-evite

DSCN6083showed up and I thought they truly got into their chalk painting but they had just come from a 5K run which ends with colours lots of colours, they just blended into this event so perfectly.   The Lake Worth Art League has artists outside painting and inside a sale of art books and magazines.  And again this year it rained right after the festival closed for the evening round 7 ish.  Not like last year but the artists who did not cover there art will be in for a surpirise.  DSCN6118Most of the artists are pretty much seasoned, they  came prepared.  Above pictured artist depicting the Cottages of Lake Worth,  below is Richard DelPonte with his work in progress, this is also his 20th year  participating. DSCN6103
