“We are thrilled to be a part of the longest-running art fair in East Austin. It’s a pleasure to work with and represent an event that not only enriches our community by touching thousands with its art, musicians, food and atmosphere but also brings great programming into Austin schools through the Little Artist, BIG ARTIST Program. Adrian and I invite everyone to take part in this fabulous weekend not only to shop, have fun and be entertained, but also to support this wonderful arts organization.”
“There is something for everyone to enjoy at the Cherrywood Art Fair from the music stage to the Food-pa-looza, to the 80+ artists. If you haven’t experienced the awesome inspiration that comes from this cool holiday event that CHULA League produces, this is a great season to get involved. Plus, most folks don’t know Celeste and I each have Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in painting from the University of Texas”, adds Adrian.
