News release from Ogden’s Arts Festival at Union Station, OGDEN, UT-The Ogden Arts Festival Executive Committee is delighted to present the 11th Annual Ogden Arts Festival at Union Station in Ogden, Utah. The 2 day Festival, which runs Friday June 13th, 2014 Noon to 8 p.m. through Saturday June 14th, 2014 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., boasts over 40 artist booths, Plein Air exhibition and silent auction, live music, live performing arts, free art activities for kids, HOLGAFest, food vendors and beer garden, and more.
With over 40 artist booths, including painters, photographers, and woodworkers, a selection of talented musicians and live music, guests can enjoy the festival throughout the sprawling grounds of Ogden’s Union Station.
“We can hardly wait to share with the community this year’s selection of talented artists, musicians, and performers,” said Suzy Dailey, Director of the OAF. “This will definitely be the best Arts Festival we have had at the Union Station.”
The Plein Air competition invites Painters of all abilities to interpret the beauty of Ogden and present
their works to the Festival attendees through the Plein Air and Quick Draw Competitions. Plein Air artists
will be scattered around Ogden the week before the festival, preparing compositions for the contest.
Quick Draw happens on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The public has the opportunity to view
the creations and purchase them through a silent auction running throughout the festival or buy it on
the spot for the “Buy it Now” price.
New to the Festival this year is HOLGAFest. HOLGAFest is a Photography Art Show that is open to anyone with a desire to create stunning photographs using the limited capabilities of a HOLGA camera. HOLGA cameras, which use film, provide a unique twist to photography.
The Ogden Arts Festival was established in 2004 and is a natural addition to a community with active art galleries, monthly first Friday Gallery Strolls, and a thriving downtown. The festival is designed and organized by a grass roots group of artists, gallery owners and local arts advocates. Funds raised from the festival support the Union Station Foundation, the non-profit organization operating the historic train depot and museums.
