The 11th annual art festival and concert series, also referred to as “The Ice Cream Festival”, opens on June 15 and continues through June 17th “where the teepee is” at 181 North 200 East in Logan.
Dr. Brenda Sun, executive director of the <a href=”https://littlebloomsbury.wordpress.com/” target=”_blank”>Little Bloomsbury Foundation</a>, says the event is open to people of all ages with a free Aggie Ice Cream sandwich and Great Harvest Bread cookie.
Kaylie Gage will have on display her trilogy of oil paintings on the theme of the festival: Cache Valley Past, Present and Future.
Dr. Sun says many high quality entries have come in and in order to be eligible for awards they must be in by May 31, with the finals on June 2nd.
“This year,” Dr. Sun explains, “we are very excited to announce that we will give master classes to those whose work is accepted for this show, and also for the upcoming Pioneer Art Festival further down the road in July.
“We have lined up quite a few maestros who will give master classes only to those whose works are accepted for the two shows.”
Those whose art work is accepted by the review panel for show at the art festival will receive free master classes with Utah Poet Laureate Paisley Rekdal (poetry), Pear Award-winning song writer Clive Romney (songwriting), composer, pianist and sound engineer John Carter and other maestros in painting and photography.
The festival features a concert each night and on Thursday there is a magic show and storytelling.
