March 24, 2003 – Friday is the deadline for artists wishing to take part in the April Art Fair at the Marketplace to submit entry forms to the sponsoring Artists' Association of St. John.
Work to be exhibited can be two- or three-dimensional, must be original and must be for sale. There's no entry fee, but each exhibitor must be a member or member associate of the association. Artists who do not reside on St. John may become associates.
The Art Fair at The Marketplace will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 4, and from 10 a.m. ro 8 p.m. Saturday; April 5. There's more to the event than the exhibition, with activities for artists and art appreciators alike, "of all tastes and ages," a release states. Artists will be working on site, and on Saturday there will be face painting and other activities for children along with "demonstrations, conversations, and lots of inspiration."
Exhibitors will be set up on the second and third floors of The Marketplace. The public is invited and admission is free both days. Those artists who have signed on to demonstrate include Kimberly Boulon, Avelino Samuel, Mandy Thody and Ron Keele. There'll be guided activity at a Hands-on Arts and Crafts Table for children ages 5 to 10 on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon (youngsters must be accompanied by adults) and a young people's parade at 12:30 p.m.
"The Art Fair is a showcase for the immense talents of AASJ members and member associates," the release states. "Original work and prints will be for sale."
