The Buckman Art Show and Sell celebrates its third decade this year and its annual festivities continue to delight. Someone told us it’s all happening at the school – 100 local artists in all kinds of mediums, paintings, ceramics, jewelry, garden art and everything in between. There are handmade creations alongside a student art sale, food carts, face painting and hands-on art activities for the whole family. Best of all, it’s a benefit for Buckman Arts Focus Elementary.
This year’s Show and Sell hosts special guests Letra Chueca, the Latinx Womxn-Owned Press “decolonizing design through collaboration + representation.” A new poster, made with the Race Forward Student Group, is especially striking and prints made for the weekend will go fast. The press uses conscious practices to “intertwine social justice with craft, latinidad and the printed word.” (letrachuecapress.com).
Rock and Roll Camp for Girls will have a zine making station Saturday from 11am-1 pm (girlsrockcamp.org) And did you know there’s a camp for adults too?
Featured art and artists this year include wearable art by parker + simonne designs (pictured right), ceramic creatures by James DeRosso and Kendall Jones; Darby Granberry’s art with co-workers in the staff art exhibit; Sachiko Quinn’s batik and acrylics (pictured above); and elegant Elisabeth Jewelry by Molly Rahe.
