ArtFrenzy: Treasures on the Beach

ArtFrenzy: Treasures on the Beach

Looking for treasures from the beach? You will find a dazzling array of handcrafted articles and more at the ArtFrenzy Arts Festival in Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area, on Saturday and Sunday, June 8 & 9, 2002, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Arts and crafts vendors will be lined up on Beach 169 Street by the entrance to Fort Tilden both days. Visitors can stroll among booths filled with all kinds of unusual art objects crafted by many local artists.

Some of the area artists include Arlene Cornell, a watercolor artist known for her evocative landscapes of boats and water. Her works invite you into a world celebrating simple and natural beauty.

Local resident and artist Liz Smith will bring one of a kind hand decorated glasswork, photographs and samples of sand art photography. Look for her sign, Simply Created by Liz.

Steve Yaeger is a local author and painter, concentrating on subjects from nature as well as Rockaway scenes.

Clay artist and Wave publisher Susan Locke creates distinctive pottery pieces including plates, bowls and cups. If you find yourself by the building that The Wave newspaper calls home, you will see many of her works, as well as works by other artists, displayed in the windows.

There is still some space available. So if you are an arts and crafts vendor interested in displaying your wares at the ArtFrenzy, please call 718-634-1300 to secure a site.
