CAFE art show offers spring time art
For more than five decades, Catalina Island has been home to the Catalina Festival of the Arts. This popular art show fills Crescent Avenue with artists from around the region. Glass, oil, photography, watercolors and a palette of other media are represented and it’s a do-not-miss experience for art aficionados and fans of Catalina Island. This year’s Catalina Festival of the Arts will be held September 19 to 21 and it is nearly always a sellout weekend, so advance accommodations reservations are a necessity.
Art fans who are looking for another reason to escape to Catalina Island can thank the organizers of the art festival, the Catalina Island Art Association, for bringing back the Catalina Art Fair and Exhibition five years ago. The CAFÉ show will take over Crescent Avenue with arts and artisans over Easter weekend, April 18 to 20. The show will open with an artists’ reception and booths will be open for the show and sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Live music will frequently provide a backdrop for perusing paintings, photography, jewelry and crafts from local and regional artists.
