Project 308 hosts art festival on Oliver in North Tonawanda


Tonawanda News — “I just love what she is bringing to North Tonawanda,” she said. “Normally, you have to go downtown for something like this, but now, thanks to her, it’s right here.”

Attendees on Saturday also got to grab a bite to eat from Lumber Jake’s Burgers and Shakes, and try some wine from The Traveling Vineyard. Performances were put on by the Marjorie Blakely Dance Studio and Danceamour, and two glassblowers, Jason Rochevot and Aaron Brown, were also there to entertain the crowd. And kids also got the chance to exercise their creative side by painting at a children’s station at the event. 

Although Brown is looking for a full-time job and may reduce her time at the gallery, she knows she wants to continue her work with Project 308 and put on another festival. 

“Regardless, I want to do this again, and learn from what went well this year and what I could improve upon,” she said. “It’s a lot of fun.”
