FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Local Artist Selected to Exhibit in the Award-Winning Paradise City Arts Festival, March 18-20 in Marlborough, Massachusetts
Robin Samiljan of Swampscott, MA was selected from among nearly 1000 applicants to participate in the Paradise City Arts Festival, March 18, 19 & 20, at the Royal Plaza Trade Center in Marlborough, MA.
Thousands of images were reviewed last April, with just 175 artists selected for this prestigious show. The applicants’ work was judged on the basis of imagination, technical excellence, design and originality. Robin Samiljan is in very good company, since many of the works by the exhibiting artists are featured in major collections, museums, and publications around the world.
Named among America’s Top Ten Art Fairs since 2004, Paradise City Arts Festival is Metro Boston’s most acclaimed show and sale of fine craft, paintings and sculpture. Paradise City offers innovative shows with a diverse selection of the newest work at the cutting edge of design, from the studios of both emerging and established artists. More than one-fifth of the participating artists will exhibit their work for the first time at Paradise City Marlborough.
Special Exhibit: The Nature of Beauty
"Blushing Lotus", my watercolor submission
"Hidden Sunset", my encaustic submission
Paradise City continues its acclaimed series of themed special exhibitions with this spring’s “The Nature of Beauty” in the Sculpture Café. Paradise City’s artists share their own perceptions of beauty in glass, wearable art, jewelry, clay, photography, painting and sculpture. The works in this “show-within-a-show” may encompass irony, subtlety, sentimentality or elegance. While beauty may indeed be in the eye of the beholder, in its essence, beauty brings harmony to our lives.
The Sculpture Café features a different band each day playing classic jazz, jazz vocals and swing, lending a lively ambiance to the festivities. The 14th annual coat check station benefits the Marlborough Public Schools Music Association, which supports music programs in the public schools.
