Amdur Productions proudly returns to the Glen Town Center with the 7th Annual Art at the Glen on Saturday, August 7 and Sunday, August 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Since its launch in 2004, Art at the Glen quickly became one of the top-rated shows in the country by Sunshine Artist magazine, and is certainly a favorite for art enthusiasts from near and far.

More than 175 juried artists travel from around the globe to showcase their artwork at this prestigious outdoor festival annually. Original works of all mediums, including ceramics, fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, paintings, drawing, photography and wood are represented at the festival. Works at the festival range from $15 to more than $5,000, ensuring there is something for everyone! Many of the artists participating in the festival will also take commissions to create the ideal piece for any festival-goer.

Situated in the elegantly appointed Glen Town Center, the festival offers something for art lovers of all ages. Activities for kids, including an art wall where children can help paint a mural, make the festival a perfect family experience. Young festival-goers can also play an interactive art BINGO game and receive an official “Art Explorer” badge. Make-A-Messterpiece, the ultimate creative studio for children ages 0 – 12, will also be on site encouraging young artists to say, “Yes to the mess!”

A variety of musical acts including acoustic rock duo Cirrus Falcon, French guitarist Michelet Innocent and jazz from Pacific Coast Music can be heard throughout the weekend. Visitors will also enjoy a variety of tasty festival fare including freshly squeezed lemonade, kettle korn, Mai Tai’s and more!  Acclaimed restaurant Ra Sushi will have a special booth on-site serving food in addition to being open throughout the weekend. Showgoers can make a day of it in the charming Glen Town Center with its incredible shopping and other dining experiences.
