Due to the forecast calling for wind and thunderstorms, organizers have decided to cancel Hurst’s celebratory Arts March Pop-Up, the Belaire Event Series – Spring Celebration this Saturday, March 23, 2019.
While the city is rescheduling it for April 27, I have prior commitments on the new date so will no longer be able to participate. I wanted to update all my followers so no one showed up looking for me and expecting a party, and finding neither.
My next festival appearance will be next weekend, Saturday, March 30 at the Bedford Arts Festival. Both admission and parking are free, and there will be an art marketplace, performances, food trucks, kids activities and more! I hope to see you there!

As a Hurst resident, finding opportunities to present my art locally to my neighbors is a rare occurrence.

[Please check with the library directly for any changes in their hours around the Thanksgiving holiday].
