There’s nothing quite like strolling among ancient oaks surrounding a charming cabin to view the works of artists and artisans and finding that perfect piece for your home or a gift. Art on Palm, a semi-annual fine craft fair, returns on Oct. 26 with 32 artists.
Held in Wildwood Park, a spur off the easternmost end of Palm Street in Altadena, the event features 32 artists and craftsmen and includes ceramics, collage, encaustic, glass, jewelry, paintings, photography, textiles and woodworking. Refreshments are available from Jones Coffee Roasters of Pasadena, and Bullfish provides music.
“Art on Palm really does have something for everyone”, states Mary Jane Elgin, the event’s co-founder. “Art on Palm promotes gifted local artists, rewards a loyal audience with fresh and unique work, and even raises funds for the Greater LA Fisher House.”
Readers may be familiar with Fisher House Foundation for offering to provide death benefits to the families of fallen warriors during the Federal government shutdown. The Greater LA Fisher House Foundation provides humanitarian support for military personnel hospitalized at the Westwood VA and their families. Art on Palm artists have donated a portion of their sales since 2006.
