Art in the Park this weekend

Looking for art? Or just an enjoyable day? Check out the 11th annual Art in the Park Fine Arts Festival from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 3-4, on the Danville Town Green, in front of the Library at 400 Front St.

More than 60 booths will display paintings, ceramics, photography, fine jewelry and textiles. The Monte Vista and San Ramon Valley High Jazz Bands will play music, and food and wine will be available at the free event.

A children's art table will give kids the chance to make a masterpiece to take home, supplies compliments of the Alamo-Danville Artists' Society. The San Ramon Valley Museum will have its kiddie train available for rides.

Art in the Park is sponsored by ADAS and the Town of Danville It is a fundraiser for art in the schools of the San Ramon Valley. All artists donate a percentage of sales to the Art in the Schools fund, which is distributed to local elementary and middle school teachers for specific art projects. Almost $100,000 has been raised by ADAS events.

In conjunction with Art in the Park is the "Inside Art Show" in the Community Center, with art by members of ADAS and artists who have booths in the park. Judge will be Nikki Bash-Davis, artist and teacher.
