Last Call for 2014 Busker Entries

As many of you know, the 2014 Spring Busker Festival is just around the corner.  The festival is free and will take place at Seaport Village on Saturday March 29th and Sunday March 30th 12pm-5pm.

So far, we have received more than 100 entries from many talented buskers located all around the world.  We’re doing a last call for new entries for those of you who are still in holiday mode. (I know I still am a little bit.)  CALLING ALL BUSKERS: You have until Friday 1/10/14 to submit your entry forms for the 2014 Spring Busker Festival.

You can submit your entry form here to be considered.

For those of you not in the busker know, are you wondering what a busker is?  Well, let me tell you.  Popular across the globe, buskers are public street performers known for their unusual and awe-inspiring acts. San Francisco’s Pier 39, Boston’s Faneuil Hall and London’s Covent Gardens are locations known to have vibrant busker scenes that showcase this incredible street art.

Seaport Village’s Spring Busker Festival is the only one of its kind in California, and brings 10 to 12 acts to perform throughout the outdoor waterfront shopping, dining and entertainment district. This will be the eighth year for the festival which will feature stilt walkers, contortionists, acrobalancers and more.  But that’s not all.  We will also be hosting a Buskers After Dark Festival on March 29th from 6pm-10pm.  This 18 and over show will feature a DJ, food and drink specials and multiple busker acts.  If you’ve been to this festival in the past, then you know how fun and entertaining it is! 

I’ll see you talented bunch soon!

Paul B. Lotz “Fantasies and Fables” event at EC Gallery

Exclusive Collections Gallery is definitely known for its beautiful pieces of work and talented artists.  This weekend, January 4-5th, the gallery which is located at Seaport Village is hosting a Paul B. Lotz event called “Fantasies and Fables”.  How fabulous does that sound!

 A little background on Paul B. Lotz.  Paul B. Lotz was born in 1966 in Long Island, New York. He graduated from Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art in 1989 with a Graphic Design degree. “Art is born of inspiration and evolves into an emotional release of energy,” explains Lotz. “Without the balance of both, I would find myself at a loss. To create is my passion.” He began sculpting in 2010, studying and experimenting with the clay medium. His travels to Europe sparked his interest in Renaissance culture, architecture, and the talent of the Masters. He continues to use historical imagery in his work, which results in a dialogue of its very own.

Paul B. Lotz is traveling to galleries to introduce collectors to his work beginning January 4-5 at Seaport Village. Be sure to keep an eye on this sculptor’s career as he manifests his fascinating scope of ideas to his three-dimensional work, revealing new patinas and introducing new figures to his collection.

The event is FREE. I know FREE!  Don’t’ you love hearing that word?  Stop by and check out the work of this talented artist on Saturday 6pm-9pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm.  To RSVP, call (702) 432-1154 or .  You can also RSVP on their Facebook page by clicking here

See you at the gallery!
