The Canvas 

June 7, 2011

Greetings!

 

In less than 30 days, thousands of art aficionados, families and friends will descend upon Denver's beautiful district of Cherry Creek North. As we finalize all of our preparations, we continue to explore and find ways to share art experiences and support arts education. Along with the many ways you can participate,  we are also encouraging patrons to share the Cherry Creek Arts Festival.

 

We encourage you to share any of the many aspects of our upcoming 2011 Arts Festival. We strive to touch and enrich lives, and you can help us one person at a time, through personal conversation, email or social media.

 

Some ideas to share with friends & family:

1) Your volunteer experience, and encouraging people to visit http://www.cherryarts.org/volunteer 

2) Visual artists participation and sharing our directory: http://cherryarts.org/artists 

3) Ways to get involved at http://cherryarts.org/get-involved 

4) Have others join you at the festival http://cherryarts.org/the-festival/fast-facts 

5) Invite people to join a public dialog with art at http://www.cherryarts.org/shocking 

 

Thank you for your ongoing support, TerryAdams 042611 

 

Sincerely,  

 

 

Terry Adams

President and CEO


What's New... Part 1


VISUAL ARTISTS 

The exhibiting visual artists are at the core of the Festival: 78 of the 230 artists are first-time-ever CCAF exhibitors, with 87 artists returning from 2010. 17 artists are from the state of Colorado. The artists were chosen in a blind-jury process from 2,100 artist applications, making the CCAF one of, if not the most, competitive art shows in the nation.  

 

ART AUCTION: NEW INDOOR LOCATION AND LAUNCH PARTY  

The Art Auction Gallery has moved indoors and is having a launch party!  The Arts Festival invites you to the Art Auction Launch Party on Wednesday, June 22nd from 5:30pm -- 8:00pm! Come enjoy a cocktail and be the first to view the donated work from over 120 exhibiting artists. RSVP to the Launch Party at management@cherryarts.org or 303.355.2787

 

The online art auction launches online and in-person June 22nd at 3000 E. 3rd Avenue Suite #8, Denver. This location will then continue to be the Art Auction Gallery location during the Cherry Creek Arts Festival: July 2, 3, 4.

The Art Auction Gallery provides patrons with a chance to acquire original fine arts and crafts that have been generously donated by the exhibiting artists. Visit www.CherryArtsAuction.org to place online bids.  Bids close in a staggering format on Monday, July 4th after the close of the Arts Festival beginning at 7 p.m. Proceeds from the Art Auction Gallery benefit the CCAF's 501c3 non-profit mission and year-round education programs in schools. The Art Auction Gallery is presented by Heinrich Marketing in association with the Cherry Creek Shopping Center.

 

NEW FESTIVAL NIGHTS LOCATION AT THE ALL-NEW BEER GARDEN  

 To maximize comfort, convenience and fun, Festival Nights will now be held at the all-new Beer Garden on St. Paul Street.  At the new Beer Garden, patrons can enjoy the tasty delights of culinary avenue, exciting music and international brews - now well into the night!  Music by bands such as Opie Gone Bad are sure to spice up the end of a great day in Cherry Creek North.  When the sun goes down, the fun turns up for Festival Nights at the all-new Beer Garden, presented by Heineken Light!

 

ALL-NEW "SPIRITED" FUN FOR THE FESTIVAL 

CCAF welcomes Hendrick's Gin as the headlining liquor sponsor for the 2011 Festival.  Included in this new partnership are Milagro Tequila and Stoli Vodka, also available for responsible enjoyment at CCAF 2011. These refreshing cocktails will be available throughout the weekend for patrons of legal age at multiple locations throughout the Festival including the Opening Gala and Festival VIP Club.

 

DAILY SCHEDULES AT A GLANCE  

Now it's easier than ever to keep up with the wide array of performances and schedules taking place throughout the festival.  Patrons can now print singular daily schedules for the day they're attending the festival.
