Lundgren HAEPinktober We simply can’t believe that October is almost gone – it seems like only yesterday we were celebrating its arrival! But what better way to say goodbye to an amazing October than to celebrate artists and their unique talents at the Hyde Park Village Art Fair? Well, get ready because this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., you can celebrate the departure of one of our favorite months with the Howard Alan Events family. Featured in the most recent issue of Accent On Tampa Bay, we promise you this event definitely lives up to the anticipation!

With highs anticipated to reach only the high 70s and lows in the high 50s, the weather is just fine for you and your family to stroll up and down Hyde Park Village and experience the talent of over 150 national and local artists as you enjoy one-of-a-kind, original pieces in a juried-style, two-day outdoor exhibition. You’ll have the chance to purchase quality art by gifted painters, sculptors, and more, while also meeting the artists themselves; you’ll even have the chance to win an original piece by celebrated painter Susan Lane during the featured artist giveaway. The best part? The event is free and open to the public, so everyone in your family can attend. Wondering what kind of things you could find at this art fair over the weekend?

As this month comes to a close, we are reminded of the brave men and women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. For this, the final HAE Pinktober show this month, there is a group of very special artists who are donating pieces of work in support of breast cancer research and awareness. As this week’s Featured Artist, Susan Lane is donating her painting, “Red Palms in Sunset” to be given away this Sunday at 4 p.m. at her booth, where patrons can also sign up for the Featured Artist Giveaway. However, she is also selling a breathtakingly special breast cancer-focused painting called “I Believe in Pink,” of which part of the proceeds from sales will be donated to breast cancer. Other artists donating proceeds of sales from breast cancer-focused works include Glenda Lundgren, Steve and Kate Koestner, Arlene Parker and Jay Lensink.
