Art on the Green – Our First Ongoing Art Fair

Published by Roberta Emerson

There’s a new gathering in town – artists are here on the plaza in front of the Bankhead Theater to show off their unique and creative artwork. Love art? Love jewelry? Love hand made items? They’re gathered here for you. Acrylics, photography, digital art, necklaces, earrings, hand carved spoons, mosaics, masks, demonstrations and dancers.

This is a first-time art fair that will gather every third Saturday June through September on the Shea Homes Plaza in downtown Livermore. The Bothwell Arts Center is sponsoring the fair to get recognition for Livermore area artists, build an audience, and give art lovers a chance to meet the makers. Artists keep 100% of sales proceeds—this is a fair by the artists for the art-loving public.

Here’s a chance to meet the artists that make original art to hang in your house or office. These Livermore area artists live here…and are friendly! They’d be happy to talk about their work to you (for hours – just a warning!). The artists have stories behind their work, where they got the inspiration for a particular bracelet, or how they were in the right spot for a photo. This is the fair to meet the artists living in your town. Some make art that is about the area where they live, some make art that is personal, some make art that is just plain pretty — see if it resonates with you!
Meet artist Linda Ryan, who is demonstrating her amazing gel pour technique. This is a rare opportunity to be a part of watching the process of this messy, wonderful and organic art making. Linda is off to London in July for an exhibit of her gel pour paintings. You won’t be able to resist the intrigue of watching the blends. A great opportunity; so don’t miss Linda’s booth.

Next walk over to watch wood carver Don Botts at work carving some spoons. He’ll have multiple examples on sale of his intricate designs.
