As the heat fizzles into longer nights and the kids head back to school, don’t forget to savor the last days of summer with the Fall Out of Summer Arts Festival on September 18 hosted by Artists’ Exchange. Artists’ Exchange is a non-profit arts collaborative that is home to multiple art studios, a gallery, art boutique, café and a multi-use performance and instructional space at a secondary venue, Theatre 82.
The annual Fall Out of Summer Arts Festival, now in its ninth year, provides an opportunity for the Artists’ Exchange to give back to the community while raising awareness for their art and theater programs. The festival will feature live music, theater and artisans showcasing their jewelry, clothing, paintings, pottery, recycled artwork and more. Attendees can try their hand at a variety of hands-on crafts, enter a pavement chalk art contest or play an original “artsified” carnival game. Local food trucks packed with art of the culinary sort will be there, as well as a beer and wine garden for the adults. Whether you’re coming to paint a pumpkin or purchase a painting, summer isn’t over until you say it’s over.
