Bluff Park Art ShowIf you’re looking for a family-friendly way to spend your weekend enjoying the fabulous fall weather, we guarantee you won’t want to miss the upcoming Bluff Park Art Show.  Voted the “best art festival” in the 2013 Best of Bham awards in Birmingham Magazine, this year’s 50th annual art show is being held in picturesque Bluff Park on Saturday, October 5.

Originally started as a fundraising effort for the Bluff Park Elementary School Library, the Bluff Park Art Show has become a much bigger and much more prestigious affair. Today, proceeds from the show benefit the arts in the greater Birmingham community through projects such as buying art books for local schools or libraries or commissioning paintings and public sculptures.

This year’s show will feature more than 50 artists who are proficient in a variety of mediums including painting, pastels, printmaking, clay, jewelry, wood working, sculpture, photography, metalworking, mixed media and more. Dean Mitchell, a well-known watercolor artist, will be judging this year’s show and presenting the top award to the winning work, which will be added to the show’s permanent collection. Other pieces from the show will be on display in public buildings, local schools and colleges throughout the upcoming year.

After you take in the area’s best art and artists at the show, be sure to drop by our two communities located nearby, The Preserve in Hoover, Ala. and Wisteria in Alabaster, Ala.

Homes at The Preserve come in three two-story floor plans with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and prices from the $460’s. Features include wide rocking chair front porches, open floor plans, hard-surface flooring throughout the main level, 36-inch ventless fireplaces, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and much more. The community also offers families the perfect place to gather and play with a community park that includes a playground, pavilion and outdoor fireplace.
