Spring is in the air at the arts fair

-A A +A

The Los Alamos Arts Council announces the 46th annual Spring Arts and Crafts Fair, from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Fuller Lodge lawn.
The LAAC has been presenting the spring fair every year since 1967, and this year’s fair is sure to be the one of the best ever, according to executive director, Marlane Hamilton. Featuring nearly 100 artisans from across the southwest, the Arts and Crafts Fair offers both traditional and contemporary art forms. All of the items displayed are hand made or hand crafted.
The Arts and Crafts Fair will feature items such as pottery, weavings, clothing, woodworking, jewelry and more. In addition to the art, Sol y Luna will be performing guitar music and the Lads of Enchantment, the Los Alamos barbershop quartet will be at 2 p.m.
In the spirit of Mother’s Day, there will be a separate area where fathers can bring children to create special handmade gifts for mom. The service is free and provided by the First Baptist Church. Valynn Purvis will have an inflatable castle for children. Josephine Boyer will be on hand to do face painting and temporary tattoos.
While at the fair, take time to answer a few questions on the LAAC survey and receive an opportunity to win a round trip plane ticket to Albuquerque provided by the new Los Alamos air service, New Mexico Airlines.
