The Pullen and Sertoma arts centers will hold their Fall Arts Fair on Saturday, October 20 from 10 am until 5 pm outdoors at the Pullen Arts Center, 105 Pullen Road near the bell tower at North Carolina State University. The fair is free and sponsored by the City of Raleigh Arts Commission.
The public is invited to visit the fair tents to see the creations of local potters, jewelers, painters and other multi-talented individuals.
“The Fall Arts Fair encourages area residents and visitors to support and buy local art from emerging and established artists,” said Jill Brown, director of Sertoma Arts Center. “It is a way to keep it local while creating community around and through the arts.”
Visitors can purchase art work and enjoy free art exhibits, demonstrations, kids’ art activities and local music from the Clear Run Bluegrass Band. Featured food trucks Chirba Chirba, Kona Ice and Porchetta will be on hand to sell food and beverages.
“The Pullen Art Center is an ideal location for this family arts festival,” said Jerry Bolas, executive director of the City of Raleigh Arts Commission. “The Fall Arts Fair showcases our local artists, offers entertainment and kids activities, and it’s a great time to learn about the many art classes for children, youth and adults available at the Sertoma and Pullen Arts Centers.”
The Fall Arts Fair will be held rain or shine.
