If you’re in Texas between Saturday, April 12 and Sunday, the 13th, you simply must get to The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival. Greg Lawler’s Art Fair SourceBook (AFSB)TM has ranked the festival the number one in Texas and the number 3 in the nation at large for fine art sales. This was in comparison to 600 art fairs in the US in 2013.
Cindy Hardin, President of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council, said, “It is incredible that after only eight years, The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival is one of the top fine art festivals in the country. Art Fair SourceBook is the ‘go to’ website for fine artists across the country, ranking the festivals by artists’ sales. This ranking acknowledges the high quality of work of our exhibitors and the deep interest and support of the community.”
The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival is a juried arts festival that occurs annually. It features over 200 national, regional and international fine artists who display their original designs.
As part of the festival, participants can enjoy an awesome DRUM JAM on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 4-7pm at The Woodlands Waterway Square. This second annual event will include interactive drum and beat stations, bongo drums, drum lines, junkyard percussions and more. In attendance will be Let Them Drum! All-Stars, the Sam Houston State University Steel Drum Band, Dan the Drummer and more!
All proceeds from the drumming event will go to Because Art Matters. As Kayleen Barton, Coordinator for Because Art Matters, said, “For a donation, participants can join in the drumming fun – either on trash cans and buckets (like STOMP), on hand drums from around the world, or as part of a drum line! The event promises to be a fun time and an opportunity to make a real difference in the community by helping to bring fine arts to those who would not otherwise have the opportunity.”
