Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
This event is sponsored by a NYC Council Grant awarded by Karen Koslowitz to the Kew Gardens Council for Recreation & the Arts, Inc. and a Friends of The Potter's Wheel Grant Kew Gardens Celebrates the Diversity of Queens Artists on Sunday, September 22, 2019 (rain date October 6th). If you are looking for a large, commercial art show, then this is not the event for you. But if you prefer a full day of art experiences that celebrate the rich diversity of Queens, then this event is for you.
At the centerpiece, you will find a wonderful art show, Kew Gardens Outdoor Art Fair (on Austin Street, Lefferts Boulevard & neighboring streets) that will showcase an eclectic mix of fine art. The organizers, a small group of local artists, had a vision for Kew Gardens; to bring together talented Queens painters, potters, photographers, glassmakers, jewelry artists, illustrators and fiber artists and that is exactly what was accomplished. Expect an open and welcoming, very professional art show with a small town feel! The entire neighborhood will be turned into an art experience at Kew Gardens Community Arts Day. Watch awesome Sidewalk Chalk artists transform NYC concrete into intricate, wild works of art through vibrant colorful designs (children invited to do the same!). Learn how culture influences art from demonstrations by multicultural artists at several of the Outdoor Art Fair tables and practice these art forms and other projects at the Art Zone. Admire an intergenerational fence art exhibit created by Kew Gardens senior citizens and children on Grenfell Street. From 12:30pm-5:30pm, sit back and be entertained by the Kew Gardens Musicians at an outdoor show that will feature a popular mix of music genres in Kew Gardens Cinemas Park. Walk up 83 Avenue to watch a potter's wheel demonstration at The Potter Wheel and explore your creative side at the art activity tables taking place on that block. Chat with friendly volunteers at the Information Booth and pick up a listing of the day's happenings What's Going On In Kew Gardens Today. Check out local businesses for promotions and demonstrations.
