Art set to blossom in Cherry Hill next month

March 22, 2013 by  

The ‘Art Blooms’ festival will run for two weeks in Cherry Hill, beginning in late April.

The festival will consist of a variety of events, including a coffee house, concerts, fashion shows, and art exhibits. The first event of Art Blooms will be the Earth Festival, presented by Sustainable Cherry Hill. It will feature artists and crafters selling their original handicrafts, environmental displays, and family activities such as a family bike ride.

All art works submitted in the Art Blooms festival must be art on canvas or paper; this will include watercolors, oils, and prints. Each artist can submit up to three pieces of artwork until April 24, and a submission fee of $10 per piece applies. Artists then compete for various cash prizes, with the winners being announced at the festival’s opening reception.

Those taking part in the Earth Festival will likely want to work with Cherry Hill printing companies to prepare. Artists and crafters might want to invest in a colorful sign or banner that will draw attention to their booth. Those providing environmental displays might also want to distribute literature to those who are interested in the work they do.

Art Blooms will run at the Croft Farm Arts Center from April 27 until May 11, with Earth Festival 2013 taking place on the opening day from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Admission is free and the opening reception for Art Blooms will take place on April 27 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. For more information, call 856-488-7868.
