Bayou City Art Festival - Memorial Park

Known as ''The Art Couple,'' Signe and Genna Grushovenko are the featured artists for this year's 42nd Annual Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park. The Grushovenkos, from South Carolina, create intricate and multicolored mixed-media works using oil paint and vintage photos.

More than 300 other juried artists join the Grushovenkos at the festival, including participants in two new programs. One, the Emerging Talent program, is especially designed to support young artists with little or no experience in exhibiting and selling their work. The other, Fresh Perspectives, is for experienced professional artists who are exploring new mediums and styles. Besides the exhibits by hundreds of artists, there's a full program of live music and entertainment.

There’s no parking at the festival site; take advantage of the free shuttles. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Memorial Park, 6501 Memorial. For information, call 281-813-6401 or visit www.bayoucityartfestival.com. $3 to $15.
