On a late spring day you might expect to see artists painting their canvasses on the streets of Paris. This June, Jersey Central Art Studios together with the Chamber of Commerce and the Cranford Downtown Management Corporation will be bringing artists' to Cranford's sidewalks, parks, private gardens and meandering river. For five days, June 9th through the 13th, over thirty juried professional artists from New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Kansas, and even Germany will be using Cranford's historic architecture and natural beauty as their inspiration. This event will allow the public to watch over the shoulders of nationally known painters as they bring outdoor scenes to life on their canvasses.
Information headquarters for this event will be located at Joanie's Café in the heart of downtown Cranford and visits to the artists locations can begin Thursday and last through Sunday. A map and volunteers will be on hand to provide daily updates of the artists' locations, giving visitors and the public the opportunity to find and see the painting processes firsthand.
How did it go? Take a look.
