Shaker Village Craft Fair

Next up in my 2018 art fair schedule is a new show for me and I’m very excited to be able to participate this year! The Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill Craft Fair is around 3 weeks away and I’m busy making some new items for this show. Put it on your list if you were not able to make it to Berea this year.

Berea Craft Festival 2018 Edition

One of my favorite weekends of the year is fast approaching. If you’ve visited the Berea Craft Fair in the historic Indian Fort Theater, you probably know why. How fun to have the woods filled arts and crafts and musicians and dancers and good food and good vibes and good will and camaraderie and….well, you get my drift.

My work table is filled with work to complete, as is always the case before a show. And the excitement is setting in.

Make plans to visit us in Berea, Ky on July 13, 14 and 15th if you can. In addition to the craft festival, Berea, Ky is a wonderful, fun experience with a good amount of galleries to visit, two of which just received large shipments of some of my newest pieces. (Appalachian Fireside Gallery and the Kentucky Artisan Center)

Hope to see you there!

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.

Witches among us.

I am watching Salem on Netflix while working on art. The show is very inspiring and filled with such imagery. This is the perfect time of year to begin the series.

I have noticed though that some of my sculpts are beginning to be affected.

 

I hope it is of my own doing.

Is it wrong that I will put this girl in the oven to bake? To dry her of course! And at a low temp.
