Plainsboro Public Library Arts Festival Sept. 15

PLAINSBORO PUBLIC LIBRARY ARTS FESTIVAL: Sheela Raj of Plainsboro will again demonstrate painting on textiles at this year’s event on Saturday, September 15 from 12-4 p.m. at the Plainsboro Public Library. Other Plainsboro artists, as well as members of the Plainsboro Library Artists’ Group, will also show their work, demonstrate their techniques, and help festivalgoers develop their own artwork.

You can learn everything you ever wanted to know about fabric painting, Chinese knotting, sketchbook journaling, face painting, henna, Chinese and Marathi calligraphy, clay jewelry, and much more when local artists take center stage at the Plainsboro Public Library on Saturday, September 15, for the library’s annual Arts Festival. The event is scheduled from 12-4 p.m.

A disc jockey will be on hand throughout the festival; and members of the West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North a capella group Out of the Blue will perform, as will the high school’s string orchestra, Nonet.

Funded by the Friends of the Plainsboro Public Library, the festival will take place rain or shine, and will feature Plainsboro artists as well as members of the Plainsboro Library Artists’ Group. In addition to showing their work, they will demonstrate their techniques and will help visitors develop their own artwork.

Celebrate the centennial of Plainsboro Township, which will take place in 2019, by participating in the creation of a centennial banner during the Arts Festival. Plainsboro artist Sangeeta Vinoth will distribute patches on which festivalgoers may write their names in paint, ink, or other media. The patches will be glued to a large banner, which will hang in the library art gallery next May, in conjunction with an exhibit commemorating the centennial.
