The San Leandro Art Association is holding its 54th annual "Festival of Fine Art" at the Casa Peralta in San Leandro. On display will be close to 200 original pieces of artwork in an array of media, including oil, acrylics, graphics, photography, and watercolor.

An open call for art drew entries from 60 artists with 37 youth entries. The children's exhibit features work from elementary to high school aged students with awards presented for the top three entries. Adult entries will also be awarded first, second, and third place honors along with honorable mention. Artist and instructor Carolyn Lord serves as this year's judge, and awards will be presented at a special reception for the participants.

This annual event is sponsored by the San Leandro Art Association, a long standing art organization whose purpose is to support emerging, professional, and youth artists. The SLAA brings art activities to local communities through numerous art exhibits, artist demonstrations, and grants to art teachers to support art projects at the primary, middle, and high school level.

The "Festival of Fine Art" is a lively event with something for everyone. Along with the artwork, there will be original crafts, matted pieces, and cards for sale, art activities for children of all ages, a silent auction, a raffle, and ongoing art demonstrations. Admission is free, and refreshments will be available, as is street parking.
