The Penn Hills Arts Council president expects the group’s 30 th annual Arts and Music Festival to be even bigger than previous years’ events.

“Last year there were 144 (pieces),” said Catherine Meara, president of the Penn Hills Arts Council. She said that represented around 80 artists from around the region.

The free, two-day event on July 20 and 21, will take place in the Penn Hills Library, and feature works of art, live music, food and a presentation from the Humane Animal Rescue Wildlife Center in Penn Hills on Friday.

The festival ends each day at 8:30 p.m. It starts at 3 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday.

This year’s judge, Adrienne Heinrich, hails from Murrysville. She is a Pennsylvania Residency Artist and was Artist of the Year at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts in 2002. The council will present awards in various categories at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Paul Thompson, Vince Gorman and Tony DePaolis will perform jazz music on Friday and Saturday.

Artists had until July 1 to register for the event, but Meara said the council is accepting additional entries. It costs $20 to submit three works of art, which can be photography, acrylic, watercolor or mixed mediums.

Artists also have the option to sell their artwork, Meara said.
