It is a happy birthday, indeed. The Southlake Women’s Club is preparing to celebrate the 18th anniversary of Art in the Square. The annual, three-day event begins at 4 p.m. Friday, April 28, and ends at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 30.

More than 160 internationally renowned artists will have their work on display at the 18th Art in the Square, plus local, emerging and high-school artists, too, for viewing and for sale.

Support from the artists, the community and the event’s sponsors is “incredible,” says longtime volunteer and 2017 sponsorship chairman Carmen Evans, who nurtures relationships with about 100 cash and in-kind sponsors each year, including Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty as well as other major supporters. Evans attended her first Art in the Square in 2002 and immediately knew she wanted to play a role in “such a cool event.”

“I had to be part of it,” says the native Texan, who had moved to Southlake with her husband and two children the year before. After working with entertainment and beverage sales, Evans found her niche in securing sponsorships.

“That is the role that fits me,” she says.

Since its first year, Art in the Square has raised $2.5 million and annually raises about $200,000, which the Southlake Women’s Club distributes to local charities. This year, the women selected 32 beneficiaries in Northeast Tarrant County that help women, children and families in need.

The event leadership takes pride in the fact that, with the exception of police and fire protection, it is run entirely by 800-plus volunteers.

This year, the Marshall Tucker Band will take the Methodist Southlake Hospital Main Stage on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. A limited number of VIP tickets are available to purchase a front-and-center spot for the Southern Rock headliners. On Friday night: The Walton Stout Band is back to kick off the three-day festival. Both the Main Stage and Gazebo Stage will host entertainment throughout the weekend.

Don’t miss Le Bistro, offering delicious fare from local vendors – everything from pizza to cakes to kettle corn, or cruise food trucks along Route 66 and enjoy beverages from the Filling Station.

It doesn’t get more family oriented than Art in the Square. Applied art and hand-on activities are available in the Kids Korner, plus bounce houses, inflatables, a bungee trampoline, zip line and rock-climbing wall for teens and ‘tweens in The Zone.
