Art on the Hill set for Sept. 28-29
CLAREMORE, Okla. – The third annual Art on the Hill will feature award-winning art, artist demonstrations, food, live music and family fun on Sept. 28-29 at Rogers State University.
The festival will be from noon to 6 p.m. on Sept. 28, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 29 at the RSU campus. The event is free and open to the public.
“Art on the Hill will be a fabulous opportunity for area residents to come enjoy a myriad of artistic and musical experiences on our beautiful campus,” said RSU first lady Peggy Rice, who serves as the event’s committee co-chairwoman.
Organized by the university and a committee of volunteers, the art show and sale this year was moved to a fall date to better allow area high school and college students to participate.
Proceeds will benefit scholarships for RSU fine arts students. In 2011, through an Art on the Hill sponsorship by Leonard and Kathy Szopinski, three $1,000 “Possibilities Scholarships” were presented to incoming and returning RSU students.
Artwork in various media by artists across northeast Oklahoma will be displayed under tents on the campus lawn in a festival atmosphere. The works will be available for sale.
Independent judges will assess the art during the festival, and awards will be announced at a ceremony, said Gary Moeller, RSU art professor and event committee co-chairman.
The event also will feature free art activities for children with hands-on, “take home” projects for children of all ages, sponsored by the RSU Student Art Association.
Live music will be featured throughout the two-day event, with performances by RSU musical groups, area jazz performers and local bands. And the RSU Theatre Program is scheduled to perform original 10-minute plays during the weekend.
