Artists celebrate fall season beside SAT's 'Hay Fever'

Wy'east Artisans Guild to debut 'Fall for Art' Sept. 10


Fall is on its way, and the Wy’east Artisan’s Guild is ready to show its own take on fall alongside Sandy Actors Theatre’s upcoming production.

During SAT’s performances of “Hay Fever,” the show, “Fall for Art,” made up of local artists’ takes on the fall season, will be available for viewing in the theater lobby.CONTRIBUTED ART - Eileen Holzmans pastel Fall Haze.

“Hay Fever,” by Noel Howard, runs Friday, Sept. 11, through Sunday, Oct. 4, at Sandy Actors Theatre, 17433 Meinig Avenue.

Guild artists hope to accent the fall play with a show that makes guests contemplate the beauty of the season.

“It is a show of guild member’s artwork responding to the glory of the season,” reads a release by the guild. “Using paint, pastel and artistically mastered photography, these local artists reveal their response to this time of harvests, crisp leaves, bare branches, migrating geese and brisk morning air.”

At 6:45 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10, the public is invited to an artist’s reception at the theater, followed by a dress rehearsal of “Hay Fever.”

Seating for the Sept. 10 rehearsal is on a first-come, first-served basis. Any donations gathered at the event will benefit the nonprofit guild’s public programs.
