Marilyn Hargrove of Playa Blanca and New Mexico, an artista herself, has supported this event from the begining, will be honored at the event this year. Realizing that the art is a heartfelt expression of a country full of pride and creativity, please take your time to take it in. Enjoy the music. Also, take in the local color and food at one of the local restaurants such as El Tamarindo. There will be available to buy a $3.00 raffle ticket for a chance to win the beautiful Mayo Hassan painting donated by the artist. This painting is presently hanging in the El Tamarindo Restaurant in Penonome for you to view prior to the event.
This year, The committee working on the event has been able to attain 4 scholarships for art materials ($525.00 each). One from GANEXA (the excellent art school in the city) and 3 from the municipality of Penonome. Last year Ganexa awarded our student contest winner a full scholarship worth several thousands of dollars. We need more of these to help the best students who can’t afford the tuition on their own. If you can help in any way, please contact Marilyn K Hargrove at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having the support of the Beach and Mountain Communities in the interior is vital to the event and very much appreciated by the artists and the committee. Will you please be there? We need you. Thank you. Directions: As you enter Penonome from the direction of Coronado, you will come to a “V” in the road in front of Dos Continentes Hotel. Take the “V” to the right and go straight through this Commercial Center of town for several blocks until you see the large white church and have to turn to the left. The park is there in front of the church. You will find parking at the church and around the Park.
