The festival started in 1950, in a modest way as most festivals do and now has mushroomed into a huge affair. http://allentownartfestival.com/about/festival-history/ There are some scholarship awards for the artists. I am still waiting to see the winners.
Some of the exhibits we saw.
A variety of styles, landscapes and portraits.
I am not an artist at all but I can appreciate the creative work of these wonderful artists. The colours, the hard work and the imagination to put their ideas on the canvas is so much like writing. I admire them. All in all the arts, the crafts we saw were very good and the food stalls made it even more
enjoyable! A great day out.
