Aha! Eyes on Alberta, a special one day exhibit and competition, will be at Studio 1627. This is my entry, 'Watchers'.
Talisman Gallery artists will be doing demos on and off through the day. Other galleries will have special events to mark the day. The All Alberta artist this year is Philemon Reid, whose paintings, drawings and prints interpret the African American jazz culture.
There will be bands, strolling performers, impromptu street performance, sky-high bicycles, neighborhood kids hawking hot dogs, or the hundreds of artists displaying/selling their own creations street side, there is something to delight anyone open to "the surprise of art."The parade starts at 2:30 pm. Bring your family and be prepared to have fun.
