Event: CEDARFEST juried arts festival at the MOAH facilities in downtown Lancaster, California. Saturday, June 11.
This event brings artists of the region together to show the varieties of artistic talent that calls the desert home. The opening reception for this show, which is kind of a big deal, in on Saturday, June 11.
There are certain events that tend to show just how many artists there are in the Antelope Valley and the surrounding area – – and it is a sizable group. But maybe because artists so often busy themselves making art, if you aren’t paying close attention it can be easy to forget or just not realize how much art is going on here.
This yearly event can be a corrective to that forgetting.
The Lancaster Museum of Art & History (MOAH) and MOAH:CEDAR are hosting the 31st Annual All-Media Juried Arts Festival, CEDARFEST, from Saturday, June 11 to Saturday, July 16. The festival and opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 11 from 4 to 8 PM.
One of last years’ prize winners was Marthe Aponte, an artist featured here. The CEDARFEST helped to launch Aponte into showing all over the place, both in the Antelope Valley and in Los Angeles. Who knows what will happen for this year’s winners…?
