Cranston summer to conclude with art event

August 13, 2013 by  

The 6th annual Fall out of Summer Arts Festival is returning to the area this September, and is a presentation of the Artists’ Exchange in Cranston.

The festival will be celebrating all of the arts, including visuals, music, and theater. It will feature art activities, contests, food trucks, and vendors.

The Human Art and Street Art contests will be voted on by the public, with the winners of each receiving a free class at the Artists’ Exchange valued at $195. Dog owners will be able to enter their pet in the Doggie ‘Show Off’ Contest, in which several awards will be handed out, including Best Dressed Dog, Most Artsy Dog, and Tail Wagging Contest. In addition, there will also be a pumpkin painting activity and handmade carnival games.

Organizers are currently looking for volunteers to help run the festival, as well as provide musical entertainment. Arts and crafts vendors can rent space for $50 and will be selling a variety of handmade, original items, such as pottery, clothing, and sculptures.

This festival will probably attract people from all over, including nearby Warwick. Local printing companies are likely to have been hired to produce marketing materials for distribution throughout the area.

The Fall out of Summer Arts Festival will take place at the Artists’ Exchange on September 22 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, with a rain date of September 29 set. Admission is $1, or free to children aged 12 and under. Call the Artists’ Exchange at 401-490-9475 for more information.
