Celebrate ArtFest 2022 at The Art Center! On Saturday, September 17 from 1 PM - 4 PM, join The Art Center in a celebration of visual art in the community. Admission is free and all ages are welcome. This is a great opportunity for families to come together and get a glimpse of the educational services and programming The Art Center provides throughout Quincy and the surrounding area. Free and low-cost, hands-on activities can be enjoyed by any person of any age, making it a great time to get creative. Activities include wheel-throwing, sidewalk chalk, scratchboard art, rock painting, no-look drawing, and an exhibit scavenger hunt. Class registration for the fall term of Art Center classes will open on September 17 both online and in person during ArtFest.
In addition to activities and artist demonstrations, the Art Center will also have two exhibits on display during the event. Artist Carlos Zamora will be at ArtFest to talk about his exhibit, The Forest Within, currently on display at The Art Center. Additionally, the 13th Annual Member Exhibit will be on display, and members are invited to come and talk to ArtFest participants about their artwork.
The Art Center will also welcome a number of community partners to the lawn with their own activities! The Budding Artist will be there with a paint-your-own-pottery project. Quincy Public Library, Quincy Community Theatre, Quincy Children’s Museum, The Lorenzo Bull House, and Arts Quincy will all be at ArtFest with free activities. Square Peg Group Troupe will be present as costumed works of art. Local musician Kathy Brink will perform beautiful music.
