Laura Hickman pastel raffled Sept. 27 at third Coastal 1Music and AJ'ts Fest By Rosanne Pack Non stop entertainment, art shopping, an opportunity for some hands-on crafts and the chance to win a valuable Laura Hickman pastel drawing all are included in the Coastal Music and Arts Fest this weekend at Lord Baltimore Elementary School in Ocean View. Although it is only into its third year, the fest has been a suc- cess since the initial event, and planners are expecting a crowd of more than 4,000 people this year. The festival is the primary fundraiser for the Lord Baltimore PTA; proceeds are used to fund projects throughout the year. The festival opens at 10 a.m. and con- tinues until 4 p.m.; the rain date is Sunday, Sept. 28. Hickman was on the planning committee for the first music and arts fest scheduled by the Lord Baltimore PTA. She said she was pleased to provide any input that she could, and the success and growth of the festival have been very encouraging. Each year, Hickman has donat- ed a pastel drawing to be used as a fundraiser. This year's contribu- tion, "Summer Ocean View", is a pastel approximately two by three feet and it shows a profusion of zinnias and vegetable plants be- hind a local cottage. Raffle tickets are $3 or two for $5 and may be purchased the day of the event. The drawing will take place at the end of the festival; the winner does not have to be present to win. "It's a scene I've drawn many times in many seasons," Hickman said. "It's the Marvel's garden on Daisey Avenue in Ocean View and it' s one of my favoritbs." An award-winning and renowned artist in southern Delaware, Hickman is known for her generous support of art and educational organizations and events. She has donated a pastel to the Coastal Music and Arts Fest each year, and she regularly do- nates to other arts fundraisers. In- cluded in the many awards that she has earned is that of Best in Show, which she has earned nu- merous times in the Sussex Coun- ty Arts Council Annual Fine Arts Exhibit. Many of her pastels show everyday scenes of her home terri- tory of Bethany Beach and famil- iar resort landmarks. Laundry hanging in the late light of a sum- mer afternoon, a bicycle leaning against the porch, flowers spilling through a picket fence, all done in rich pastel shades, fill her canvas- es. Hickman will be one of several artists exhibiting at the music and arts fest. She said that she is glad that her donation will be raffled rather than offered at silent auction. "This way, for a few dollars, everyone has a chance to win," she said. "It also builds excite- ment toward the end of the day as people wait for the drawing." In addition to artists and crafts people who will be exhibiting and demonstrating their work, music continues from opening to closing of the festival. Radio personality J.T. Cruise will be master of cere- monies on the main stage where artists include Miss Delaware 1997 Alison White, South Ameri- can folk band KATARI, well- known entertainer Mario Rocco's oldies revue, local teen rock band The Channel Surfers and well- known band Bad Penny. The Lord Baltimore and Phillip Showell el- ementary school bands will also perform and there will be country western music, sing-alongs and dance opportunities, and a gym- nastics demonstration. A variety of food will be on sale throughout the day including Ital- ian deli selections, baked goods, frozen yogurt, candy and snack items.
