postheadericon Lansing Arts Festival Opens May 2

esfota_120May 2nd marks the fifth anniversary opening of the East Shore Festival Of The Arts (ESFOTA).  This year opening night boasts about 28 Finger Lakes artists and a wealth of music, exhibits, puzzles and food.  Organizer Robin Schuttenberg says the opening will be bigger this year, including all the buildings in the Town Hall Complex.  More than 100 pieces will hang in the Town Hall and the Lansing Community Library until June 21.

"We have some really different stuff this year, a lot of abstracts," she says.  "Really big ones from new artists, new to the festival.  We are striving to be the venue for the person who has never done a show before, to feel comfortable enough to take that big step -- allowing someone to critique your work and say it is in or out.  We have several new artists, and some returning artists."
