Fun, sun and artistic expression drew nearly 2,000 people to Sienna during our recent Sienna Art Festival.
It was a beautiful day for art lovers who came out to admire the work of more than 50 artists from across the region who displayed original paintings, photography, drawings, jewelry, ceramics and more. In addition, student artists from area schools participated.
Adult artists participated in a juried art show judged by Lani Anderson. Winning Best of Show was Abdul Basit. Robert Wilkins won first place; Elizabeth Barrow, second; Sudha Iyengar, third; and Norma Richter and Rupa Munish, honorable mention.
Student artists participated in a People’s Choice contest. Addison Harris won in the elementary school category and Madeline Walsh took top honors among middle school artists. Aditya Rajan won in the high school category.
In addition, we were able to raise $5,000 for A Shelter for Cancer Families, which is celebrating 20 years of providing stability, shelter and support for families seeking cancer care.
Eventgoers also enjoyed seeing chalk artists at work. Face painters and balloon artists entertained young guests, who could also visit the Imagination Station tent to create their own art. A variety of food trucks and breweries were on hand, as well.
We’d like to thank everyone who came out to support these talented artists as well as our generous sponsors: Chesmar Homes, Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Elaine Hattan with Compass Re Texas, J. Patrick Homes, Mind Neurology Clinic, Newmark Homes, Shea Homes and Toll Brothers.
This is the second year we’ve hosted the art festival and we can’t wait to host our third. Looking forward to seeing you there!
