Riverside Festival of the Arts Seeks More Artists

Riverside Festival of the Arts, to be held this year on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21 and 22, is seeking more artists and artisans for the annual celebration and sale of juried fine art and crafts held in Easton's Riverside Park.

Cash prizes totalling $1,600 will be awarded to participants in fine arts, which includes painting, drawing, pastel, printmaking, photography and sculpture, and fine crafts -- featuring jewelry, mosaic, fabric and fiber, stained glass, metalwork, woodwork, clay work and other unique art.

Riverside Festival of the Arts will also again hold its Plein Air Art Contest during the art show for the fourth year, which costs $10 to enter and features $500 in cash prizes.

The Downtown Easton arts festival, now in its 17th year, annually attracts thousands of individuals who come to view and purchase art, listen to live music and live poetry, and to participate in, observe, and learn from live art demonstrations. Admission to the event is free, and the weekend also features a number of free children’s interactive art activities.

Applications, along with more information about the event and sponsorship opportunities, may be found at . Those wishing to participate may also call 610-438-4772 to request an application be mailed.
