So while I had great plans to have all kinds of new items ready for Art on the Prairie this weekend, they just didn't happen.
I did have new earrings and a few necklaces, but I still feel like I have gaping holes in my inventory. Still I'm making the best of it. The Prairie takes place in several downtown buildings in Perry, many of them historic and just beautiful. My venue space is the Carnegie Library. This building is just gorgeous both inside and out. Built in 1904, very classical lines and it's been restored to approximately to 1910. We are in a room just off the bathrooms and share space with a young artist named Mallory. She's a student and this is her first show, so it's really fun to share space with an up and comer.
There are a ton of fabulous artists at this show, including one of my long time favorites, Julie McCullough.
She has been making lovely fiber dolls forever, but the last couple of years she's been combining her dolls with found objects / junk. I just love where her art is going, it really speaks to me. Someday I will buy something from her, it's just not going to be this year.
Jerry and I will be back tomorrow in the same place, 10-4pm. Be sure to drop by if you are in the area.
