The Friends of the Arts (“FOTA”) will be selling hand-painted silk scarves and evening purses at the upcoming Annual Fall Festival, Sunday, September 21, 2014, along Maryland Avenue and State Circle, from 10-5.
The proceeds will be applied to the FOTA Scholar program awarding scholarships to two Anne Arundel County residents who are full-time art students at accredited Maryland Colleges.
The 2013-14 FOTA Scholars are Ashley Lim, a junior at MICA; and Yvette Yu, a sophomore at UMD-College Park. Don Dement, Gail Higginbotham and Richard Niewerth were the jurors for this year’s entrants.
