Is there really going to be a Fresno Arts Magazine?? I think that is so fabulous! Are you putting it together?
Is the Fresno Arts Magazine going to happen and what do we artists need to do to help?
This is something Victor mentioned to me. I do not know the current status.
Hi Melanie!

Are you and Diane from Studio 74 integrating OCT 2 event? Postings are confusing:)
Hi Linda!

I am confused at your question.
Don't blame you Melanie :)
I see several folks in this whole discussion of OCT @ Event who seem to be spearheading the attempts to have a OCT 2 art event. I have some people interested and I'm not sure who to contact.
Now I understand =)

I started this discussion to start the brainstorming process for events for California Arts Day. Diane is talking about events in Fresno where I am organizing a week long art festival in Reedley. California Art Day is offically Oct. 2nd, which is a Friday and it would be hard to hold a large single event on that day. Most Art Day events around the state are being held on Oct. 3rd. This years California Arts Day theme is officially 'The Art in Me'. This would be one of the reasons why the Reedley event will last a week. We want to recognize all the different types of art. The Reedley event will have an opening ceremony at noon on Oct. 2nd complete with an art show. The fun will continue until Oct. 8th. Each day will have different art themes. We will have parades, art shows, performances, interactive stuff...lots of fun. So...there is a lot to participate in.

Does this answer your question? Would you like more info?

Just let me know!


I would love to be involved in the events for California Art Day. Just let me know when, where, and time and what you need.

Hi Christina!

I am glad you want to participate!! It is going to be a fun filled event!

I will be organizing a meeting soon for all those who want to participate in the Reedley Art Festival. I will post the whens and wheres on this string. My email is Send me an email with 'Art List' in the subject line at that address if you would like to be added to an art emailing list which updates on all the happenings for the Art Festival and for other art events that I am working on.

I will talk to you soon!

This is a Call to Artists for the Reedley Arts Festival (Oct. 2 through Oct. 8). We are looking for all forms of, visual, music, poetry, sculpture, graphiti, culinary, glass, jewelry, street/sidewalk chalk, marshal arts...if it is art...we want it to be a part of this Arts Festival.

Hello everyone,

I apologize for having been absent on this planning discussion for weeks now... I tried to get the Fulton Mall for the Oct. 3 Fresno Arts Festival but it's difficult. We are hoping though to work with the FresnoMet to celebrate it on their downtown lawn (Thanks John and Cynthia M.) :)

I have to bring it up to the FAC Board meeting next week and I hope it goes through. With that in mind, we want to get as much artists there as possible --- more interactivity booths the better it would be. We are seeking 15-30 minute performers, so that throughout the day, there will be music.

I am bringing a professional sound system so you could just plug in (or you could also go unplugged).

More details will follow on Wednesday morning, September 16.

Stay tuned...


Melanie, this will conflict with Reedley's Art Fest for one day, but we will announce the week long festival that day (and in this website too as part of our CA Arts Day celebration)...
