The Lexington Art League will join Midway Renaissance, Inc. and Equus Run in presenting the 2012 Francisco’s Farm Art Festival. Now in its ninth year, the festival is a blend of juried art, live music, and delicious food set on the beautiful grounds of Equus Run Winery.
“Francisco’s Farm is going through a transitional year, and because of LAL’s experience with producing the annual Woodland Art Fair, we felt a partnership could be beneficial to our organizations and our communities,” said Stephanie Harris, LAL’s executive director. “Francisco’s Farm is a huge attraction in Midway, and our participation is aligned with our vision to make visual art the lens through which Central Kentucky distinguishes itself as a progressive, inclusive, and vibrant region.”
Francisco’s Farm Art Festival, which will be held June 23-24, was named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society and a Top 10 Festival by the Kentucky Tourism Council in 2011. It has also been recognized by American Style Magazine as a Top 10 Art Fair and Festival. Francisco’s Farm brings in more than 100 artists from 15 states, all of which were juried into the event in 2011.
“LAL will bring nearly 40 years of festival expertise to Francisco’s Farm, and we are excited to be presenting the festival in partnership with this esteemed and respected organization,” said Sara Hicks, chair of the Francisco’s Farm Committee. “The festival has become one of the highlights of summer in our region, and by working with LAL, we hope to bring the event to a whole new level.”
The two-day event will feature artist demonstrations, live music, kids activities, and delicious festival food. Festival-goers will also be able to purchase fine art and mingle with professional artists in the relaxed atmosphere of the vineyard. Admission is $10 per vehicle; there is no additional charge for parking.
