Monrovia Association has two opportunities to show and sell your art work. The fees are nominal and often you far exceed in sales what your display fee was. Its a cost effective way to promote your work to potential collectors and start a following. Covering costs is always a good thing.
ART WALK This annual event was condensed to one night of showing and selling excitement on July 25. The artists are lined up on the 400 block of South Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia. This is the same block as the theatre and you capture that crowd as well as those from the local restaurant scene. (Monrovia has quite the large sidewalk cafe scene going which in itself can be a reason to visit).
If interested in the Art Walk please contact the coordinator Bill Hyatt at BillHyatt2000@yahoo.com for all the details on this fun event.
