Art on the Greene


The seventh Annual Art on the Greene Art Festival will be held May 11-13 at Richard Greene Linear Park, and the event’s founder, Steve Moya, is expecting more than 15,000 in attendance this year.

“AOTG has a new layout this year that will be all about the artists,” Moya says. “For years attendees have walked into the festival only to see the music stage. Now when they walk in they will see artists’ booths.”

The music stage, beer and wine tent will be moved to the back of the park, offering a great view of AT&T Stadium.

“As always,” Moya says, “we will have live entertainment and a great selection of food vendors.”

Here are the times for the festival, which features free attendance: Friday, May 11 – 3 -10 p.m.; Saturday, May 12 – 11 a.m-10 p.m.; Sunday, 13 – 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Parking, which is also free, will be available in Lot J of Globe Life Park, with overflow parking available in lot B. Art on the Greene will be selling beer, wine, soft drinks and water. “We will have food vendors on hand selling food all weekend,” Moya says. “Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome. You may bring your leashed furry friends with you. All City of Arlington dog ordinances must be followed. Please be sure to clean up after your friend, as well.”

Attendees will see an array of works in a variety of media, including ceramic, digital, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media 2D, mixed media 3D, painting, photography, sculpture and wood. In addition, there will be an Authors Tent that will feature some 25 local authors selling their published works and autographing books for attendees of the festival.

Art on the Greene also will feature wine tastings of wines from Texas wineries such as Red 55 Winery, Silver Dollar Winery, Red Road Vineyard, Landon Winery, Texas Southwind Vineyard & Winery and Caudalie Crest Winery.

With the reshaped venue and the variety of sensual fares available, Moya is especially excited about this year’s event. There’s even a bonus reason for that. “The event falls on Mothers Day weekend,” he says, “which we feel is a great opportunity for families to spend Sunday at the festival.”
