Art Uprising 2012 – First Ever West Village Art Festival

20 Aug

Come to the popular energizing Uptown Dallas shopping area and make history by attending the first ever art festival held in West Village. Art Uprising will take place from Friday, September 21st to Sunday, September 23rd. You can expect the usual art fest/wine walk features but in an upscale atmosphere known to make your dining and retail experience that much finer. Along with local artwork enjoy a silent auction on Friday night, appetizers, drinks and store specials. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Emergency Artist Support League (EASL).

A few of the stores participating in the Friday Art Walk: GAP, Indigo, L.bartlett, LF, Lilli London, Kendra Scott, y&I boutique, etc.

Roam the alleys of West Village Dallas to find amazing artwork by 50 local artists as music fills the air. If you work up an appetite strolling the art-filled streets of the Village take a sip or bite of something scrumptious from eating spots like Cork, Baboush, Cru or Union Bear. Children activities and musical performances will also occur at the 2012 Art Uprising Art Festival. Uprising attendees can expect to rock out with bands like Sealion, My Wooden Leg, Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Budapest One, Tweed EQ and more. It doesn’t get much better! Light bites, captivating art, music, classy bidding wars and family fun in one of Dallas’ most intimate shopping scenes. West Village will never be the same after this September.

Cedar Hill Walk the Light Art Festival

25 Jul

When was the last time you got excited about walking through the street light? I believe mine all came after seeing this…

(Anybody remember this? It was the moment all us 80s-born Sesame Street watching kids found a new way to walk..myself included) Well you’ll get another chance this Saturday night. Cedar Hill hosts the Walk the Light Art Festival July 30th from 4-10pm in their historic downtown. It’s not far from 1382, right around the corner from the Cinemark Theatre and only a minute drive from Uptown Village.

If you’re a fan of art don’t miss this Free outdoor event displaying all art genres. Artists will display or perform their craft around in Pioneer Park, inside downtown Cedar Hill businesses and on the streets as Walk the Light Arts Festival paints the town all sorts of colors. If you’re an artist yourself and interested in participating, visit www.walkthelight.org to register. Walk the Light is devoted to celebrating artists and art of all forms by providing a unique venue for it to be enjoyed, and what better place than out in the street? Cedar Hill may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of looking at artwork but they just might change your mind this weekend once you’ve stepped into the outdoor gallery they’ve created. All you newbies to the art world can use this opportunity to expose yourself to the different forms of art and participate in the creative process through various performances, exhibits and art installations. Again, it’s Saturday 7/30 and Admission is Free! So what do you have to lose? Especially if you don’t have any other plans. Add a splash of color to your weekend and try something a little different.

This little piggy went to the Walk the Light Art Festival. That little piggy stayed home. This little piggy was glad she went, while the other got closer to becoming labeled a “bore”. (yeah, definitely not the wild kind)
