It’s Bewitching!

There has been an art show on my bucket list for a few years. Each Halloween season, as I see photos from this imaginative event, I feel like my eyes fill with orange hearts and glaze over with cobwebs. Never before have I viewed such an imaginative, creative, fun, FESTIVE Halloween atmosphere. That show was Ghoultide Gathering, dreamed up and produced by an immensely talented, and one of my favorite artists, Scott Smith and Bill Gilmore. Last year, after 10 years of producing Ghoultide, Scott and Bill decided to hand over the reigns to another immensely talented set of artists, Jennie and Joseph Takens. And, although the name of this show has changed, the artists, spirit, atmosphere and festivity of past Ghoultide Gatherings is still intact.

Last week, the most magical invitation arrived in the mail. And it’s almost as if a bit of Halloween spirit wafted out of the envelope along with it.

BewitchingPeddlersInvite

I am so thrilled and honored to have been invited to the first ever Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween. This show is filled with some of my favorite artists producing some of the most incredible pieces of artwork I’ve ever seen based upon my favorite holiday. How could I not be over-the-moon? And wickedly inspired?!

Make plans to be part of the Magic on September 30th in Chelsea, Michigan! (Click the banner below for more information.)

Kentucky Crafted: The Market 2017

It’s almost time for Kentucky Crafted: The Market 2017 edition. This year, you’ll be able to find me at Booth 211. For more info, click the banner below or continue reading. Check back in the next few days or follow me on social media for a few sneak peeks of my new work!

2017KyCrBanner

Kentucky Crafted: The Market is the Kentucky Arts Council’s signature event produced each year in the spring featuring the highest quality art, craft, literature, music, film and food found in the state. More than 200 Kentucky Crafted and select out-of-state artists, musicians and artisanal food producers make their finest work available to wholesale buyers and the general public during the three-day event.

Wholesale buyers have the rare opportunity at The Market to place orders directly with producers of Kentucky traditional and contemporary fine art and craft, as well as publishers of Kentucky related books and specialty food products.

Doors are opened to the general public during the weekend to purchase work in the retail marketplace. Shoppers can find fine art and craft from Kentucky’s most extraordinary artists, participate in hands-on activities, or take a break at the Kentucky Stage music festival featuring some of the state’s best-loved musicians and performers.

Kentucky is one of a few states in the nation to sponsor a show of this kind for its art and craft businesses. Its 34-year tradition of excellence has not gone unnoticed. Kentucky Crafted: The Market was named the No. 1 Fair & Festival in the country four times by readers of AmericanStyle Magazine. The Southeast Tourism Society has named it a Top 20 Event for 15 years.
