Del Ray’s Art on the Avenue festival usually draws hundreds of artists and upward of 75,000 visitors along Mount Vernon Avenue, but this year the celebration will be virtual.
“This is out 25th year, and it’s even more heartbreaking we can’t do it in-person,” festival founder Pat Miller told ALXnow.
More than 150 artists are still participating, and their work will be available by category from October 3 through the December holidays on the Art on the Avenue website.
“Through our site, you can buy from artists and see their work, almost just like you would with Art on the Avenue,” Miller said.
Available art includes:
- Wheel-thrown vases and bowls
- Tote bags and purses
- Drawings and pastels
- Knitted and crocheted hats and gloves
- Woven scarves and shawls
- Gourmet food
- Fused and blown glass
