Coming Soon: the Wild & Precious Arts Festival, happening May 27 and 28 in many venues around Easthampton.
In the words of The Reminder’s Ryan Feyre, this festival will “celebrate the artistic works of women 50 years of age and over through poetry, installation, cabaret, gospel music, a visual exhibit and a dance band. The two days include a little over 10 performances and activities at different locations across Easthampton that are spearheaded by artists who specialize in various mediums. Activities include live musical performances, art exhibitions and street parades”.
The festival opens at the Elusie Gallery, with a “wild and precious” art exhibition of artwork by local and regional artists in a beautiful variety of styles, subject matters and media. The Artists’ Reception is Friday between 4 and 6pm. The festival then continues in several Easthampton venues. For a full schedule, please click on the logo above.
Note that this festival is open to anyone: ALL welcome, even if you’re not wild, or precious, or female, or over fifty!
The art exhibit will be up at the Elusie Gallery until June 25, with a second reception during ArtWalk Easthampton on Friday June 3rd, 5 to 8pm.
