Sugar Land (Oct. 30, 2023) – The Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation has opened the call for artists to participate in the 2024 Sugar Land Arts Fest, a two-day festival highlighting the cultural and artistic diversity of Fort Bend County and beyond.
Created by the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation and presented by PrimeWay Federal Credit Union, the Sugar Land Arts Fest is open to all professional and amateur artists specializing in 14 mediums, including calligraphy, ceramic/pottery, photography, painting, drawing, mixed media, and much more.
“Attendance at the Sugar Land Arts Fest continues to grow each year with participation by local, regional, national, and international artists. The Arts Fest committee works diligently to create an atmosphere that promotes and honors professional and amateur artists for their talent and creativity,” said Debra Jan, Artist Committee Chair for the Sugar Land Arts Fest. “As a participating artist, I highly recommend and encourage artists to participate.”
