Masterpieces, Music and Margaritas

Beauty is an explosion of colors on a mountain scene; a glittering, purple French bulldog; a lifelike drawing of a crisp, Autumn tree; and more interesting and unique artwork that you can see at the 19th Annual Art in the Square in Southlake! The event features creations from more than 155 juried professional, emerging and aspiring high school artists from almost every U.S. state and a few international locations. During this three-day festival, guests can admire (and purchase!) fine art of a wide range of styles and mediums including drawings, sculptures, jewelry, ceramics, photographs and more, carefully selected by a jury that reviewed 790 applications for this year’s event.
Later, take a break from perusing art to experience many other activities the festival offers. Listen to live music on two stages. Many genres will be represented throughout the weekend including jazz, pop, rock, reggae, Motown and country as well as performances from local bands and dance studios. Keep the little ones entertained at Kids Korner, where they can appreciate art in the form of face painting, washable hair coloring, sugar art and oil coloring. Or, take the kids (and anyone who wants to let out some energy) to The Zone, sponsored by Children’s Health Southlake, which includes bounce houses, inflatables, a rock-climbing wall, a new zip line and a four-way bungee trampoline! Once everyone’s worked up an appetite, stop by one of many food and beverage stations to enjoy treats like tacos, roasted corn, Korean barbecue, pizza and frozen margaritas.
Since 2000, the Art in the Square festival has helped the Southlake Women’s Club raise and donate more than $2.7 million to Northeast Tarrant County charities that help women, families and children overcome daily challenges. There’s no better way to see outstanding artwork, enjoy the beautiful spring weather, have fun with the entire family and benefit the community at the same time!
