The Enchanted Forest Art Pop Up Festival

The Enchanted Forest 

A Seasonal Magical Pop Up Extravaganza 4 All 
Art 4 All People in Malibu 

19562 Pacific Coast Highway 

November 30th-December 2nd
Opening Reception November 30th 5-8pm

In the days not too long ago it was known that the forests hills and dales were filled with something special that no one could explain or prove but true non the less. Many stories have been told about the little people, the plant devas, elves, fairies, dwarfs, giants, witches and magicians  that walked the earth along with humanity in the ages past. In the book Folk Tales of the British Isles edited by Keven Crossley- Holland there are many accounts some document able some too old to do so that tell the rare and instructive stories of these folks and their doings with the human world.Tolkien coined the name of this realm as Middle Earth. In building our safe bug free so called clean world we have decimated this population and they have left us. But have they? I walk the streets of this city and see the amazing diversity of plant life. I can imagine a leaf hiding a small man who watches as we pass from the other side. With science breaking new grounds in many areas this may be a moment in time when there is a new tolerance and understanding for things we at one time thought just a "fairy story". After the doors have been opened to the dark underworld of "Samhain" (Halloween) it is time now to celebrate the middle realms.
This event is a show of great talent that honors the old ones. Come celebrate with Art for All People as we rekindle our new/old relationship to this realm long ago forgotten.

Come eat drink dance and maybe just maybe a few fairies will show and read your soul with poetry.  There will be for sale affordable art priced for under the tree, from paintings, sculptures, prints, dolls, crystals, jewelry and  much more.
Kids Enchanted Forest Join us Dec 1st and 2nd from 12:00- 5:00 for an ornamental extravaganza for the kids. We will offer supplies for a nominal fee in order for the kids or adults to create their own up cycle ornament. If you desire bring your old discarded toys, objects, and that little something you found on the street that was so cool you kept it and in the spirit of restoration give new life to what has been lost. Also, there will be an magicalYoga and Art (YogART) kids class offered on Saturday and Sunday.
