Art festival returns to Houston for another year

September 25, 2018 by  

The 47th annual Bayou City Art Festival is taking place in Houston for two days next month. A presentation of the Art Colony Association, a portion of all proceeds will be donated to local nonprofit organizations.

This year’s festival is expected to feature over 300 artists who will be selling art in 19 different disciplines such as painting, sculpture, pottery and drawing. The featured artist will be Chris Vance, a mixed media 2D artist.

This popular festival attracts approximately 20,000 visitors each year. They come not only to purchase and view art, but to enjoy live music, entertainment and a variety of food and drink from concessions and food trucks. Some of those who will be performing this year are Zachary Lerner, Jacob Marshall, the Boomtown Brass Band, Adam Lozoya and The Mad Man of Maui, Fred Lowery.

There will be several creative zones set up where guests can try their hand at some art. The Children’s Creative Zone will have giant bubbles and five-minute poems.

Houston print shops often provide signage for the organizers of annual events like this.

The Bayou City Art Festival will be held in Downtown Houston from October 13 to 14 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM each day. For the most current information, contact the Art Colony Association at 713-521-0133.
