Cool Art, Hot Jazz festival (Apr. 5 and 6)

April 4, 2008

This weekend is one of the best opportunities in awhile to get a look at local artisans and artists in fiber, clay, wood, photography, sculpture, mixed media, painting, jewelry, glass and more. And, as the Cool Art, Hot Jazz name implies, the music is going to be first rate, too, starting Saturday (Apr. 5) at 10 a.m. with the excellent guitarist Dave Black (who happens to be extremely kid-friendly — he’s even let M. handle his guitar strings a time or two).

The festival runs until 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday (Apr. 6). The location is Queeny Park, 550 Weidman Road in Manchester, a space large enough to handle the scores of artists exhibiting. Admission is free for kids under 18 and $5 for adults. There’s a kids’ area (what would an arts festival be without one???) but no special food court. For details, visit the Web site or call 314.889.0433.
