on the resounding success of last year's event, the Buck Hill
Art Association is eagerly anticipating the 2016 Fine Arts Festival
and Marketplace scheduled for Saturday, July 23, 2016. As chairperson
for this year's event, I would like to invite you to join us for
our 71st annual festival and marketplace.
festival is the Buck Hill Art Association's sole fundraising event.
It has successfully enabled the association to provide much needed
scholarships to student artists. This program goes far in encouraging
interest and participation in the arts.
addition, the festival enables the Buck Hill Art Association to
share its art collection with the community. Many pieces from
the collection are on display throughout Buck Hill and are showcased
at several educational venues in the Poconos.
indicated, this year's festival marketplace will be a one day
event. To further enhance the festival's overall appeal, there
will be an expanded outdoor marketplace as well as a variety of
food options, and a hospitality setup for artists and vendors.
The Buck Hill Art Association will hold its membership drive on
Friday evening, July 22, beginning at 6 p.m. This will be accompanied
by a cocktail party open to all Buck Hill Art Association members
as well as artists and vendors showing. Pre-sales may take place
during the hours of the cocktail party, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m., by those
artists and vendors wishing to do so.
sincerely hope you will join us for the 2016 Buck Hill Fine Arts
Festival and Marketplace!
