Art on the Greene 2013

Art on the Greene is a free 3 day arts festival located near The Rangers Ballpark and Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. This is the second year for this annual event. It got rave reviews for its inaugural year and should be awesome this year too.

Art On The Greene will be held in Richard Greene Linear Park on March 22-24 and will feature the finest artists and prominent local live entertainment. You will find a list of participating artists on the event's website.

Examples of works of two local artists that will be showing their creations are seen in this post. Brad Foster of Jabberwocky Graphix creates incredibly detailed pen and ink drawings of a variety of subject matter. Dee of Frontier Studios makes the most amazing gourd and pine needle bowls and sculptures along with pine cone duck decoys. Stop by and say hi to these local area artists and many more when you visit. Great musical entertainment as well as food and drink round out this festival.
