Summer will be here soon....
Saturday, May 18, 2013
9:00 am-5:00 pm
Sixteen thousand admirers.
An alarmingly small city block.
And it's an all originals art show. Yes! (None of the copy/reproduction stuff!) Yup. That's Marion Arts Festival 2013. The only glitch: I am on the wait list. I consider that to mean I was one hair's width from getting the nod. So close that if one other artist can't make it, I'm in. I'm planning on Deb giving me a call, so we'll look forward to seeing you there :)
Historic Valley Junction Spring Art Market 2013
West Des Moines, Iowa
Join us for the Historic Valley Junction Spring Art Market, Sunday, May 19, 2013 from 11 am - 5 pm! Its primary focus is the juried exhibition of fine arts and crafts, giving the public the opportunity to meet, interact with and purchase original work by artists.
And we'll follow that up with one of my favorite shows in Kansas:
Prairie Village Art Show 2013
5/31/13 - 6/2/13
71st Street & Mission Road • Prairie Village, KS
And while I typed Kansas up there, Prairie Village is close in to Kansas City, sitting almost on the Kansas Missouri line.
And then, WOW! I got another almost good enough nod from an incredible show in Chicago-land. Yes, that means I'm wait listed (again) but surely someone else will have to cancel - I'm planning on it. This is a very highly respected art fair, and I am thrilled to have gotten their attention with this much positive :) Here we go:
6/8/13 - 6/9/13
The Old Town Art Fair, one of the top art fairs in the country, celebrates its 64th year on June 8 and 9, 2013 as the charming, tree-lined streets of the city's historic Old Town Triangle District set the stage for 250 nationally acclaimed artists and an estimated 50,000 art lovers.
And then we jump to the July calendar page, and another favorite Illinois art fair. This is another all originals event, that means no painting reproductions, good for us all, I believe.
Geneva Arts Fair
July 27-28, 2013
We invite you to join us for a day of shopping at our juried outdoor gallery of fine art. Victorian homes-turned-businesses in the downtown historic district serve as a picturesque backdrop for the fine arts show. Voted “Best Craft or Art Show” by West Suburban Living magazine, the Geneva Arts Fair will showcase over 150 artists from around the country.
