Second Annual Sylvania Franciscan Spring Art Festival Saturday, March 28, 2020 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Sylvania Franciscans invite the community to join them in welcoming spring in a truly Franciscan fashion, with beauty, imagination and joy. The Second Annual Sylvania Franciscan Spring Art Festival on Saturday, March 28, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. promises to be packed with vibrant local artistic talent in a variety of mediums that includes wood, textile and fiber art, glass, paper, jewelry, and mixed media. Last year’s inaugural event welcomed hundreds of visitors looking for beautiful art and crafts, live music and good food. New this year is a live encaustic painting demonstration by Perrysburg artist Christine Deemer. Encaustic, from the Greek word meaning, "to heat or burn in," is an ancient mixed media technique of painting with hot wax. The demonstration begins at 11:30 a.m.
