I have been looking forward to the MBAA spring art festival. Last year was my first year to participate & it was awesome. This year didn’t disappoint! Beautiful weather in a beautiful venue plus great customers equals a blessed & grateful girl. Here are some pics from the day:
I had a great time going to Meridian this past weekend. I love seeing all the sweet people of my hometown. I learn something new every time I do a festival. I edit my packing process or make a note about a suggested artist. The best part is being able to interact with people who genuinely love art. I enjoy the honesty of a critic or admirer. Speaking of honesty…putting together enough work for an art festival is A LOT of work…but it’s worth it! It’s like having your own gallery open all day, can’t beat that:).
Come see me this Saturday, April 6, from 10-6 in Downtown Meridian. I am so excited to be back in my hometown this weekend. It’s been a loooong time since I’ve done this festival, in fact I think I was pregnant w/ Tucker the last time I was there? Here are a few things that I will have for sale.
Here is a bit of info about the festival,
Just delivered this painting to a customer in Birmingham. So fun! I enjoy painting for people so much. Thank you customers!
Here is a sneak peak at art for April shows.
My schedule is: 3 foot art festival, Meridian MS (pending acceptance of application) April 6
Mountain Brook Art Association Spring Show, Crestline Elementary, April 20
Magic City Art Connection, Lynn Park April 26, 27, 28. All of these festivals have amazing local artists & great for kids. Mark your calendars! Have a blessed week friends:)
These are some of my favorites from the weekend. (Not in picture order;)) Sculpture by Eric Johnson, mixed media paintings by Rickie Higgins, folk art by Brian Bohanan & paintings by my friend Chi Roach. It was such a nice event. I made several new art friends & collectors. The Women’s Riverchase Club put on the event & they were so hospitable. I look forward to showing next year!
I love a group art show! My art friends & I decided to create in our own style, works of art that showcase cool colors. Each one of us will give our interpretation of “cool”. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. My canvases are 28 x 28 in size, far I have 6, hoping to finish 3 more (we’ll see:)). We will have appetizers & drinks can be purchased at the bar below. Bring a friend & come hang out with us!
This Friday, Saturday & Sunday don’t miss Antiques at the Gardens at The Botanical Gardens in Birmingham.
