It’s hard to believe that 2011 is coming to an end. It was a great year being involved in so many Artfests and fund-raising events and next year will be even busier. It was such an honor to personally meet so many fine craftsmen and women throughout the year. Every show, with its own taste and more importantly upcoming and emerging artists.
I just wanted to let you know that before you know it, the warm months will be here again and it will be time for another great summer of Art shows and festivals in the midwest. I will be involved in some shows in early spring but most of the larger juried shows will begin in June. Some of the festivals i will be taking part in are the 21st Annual Legacy Park Art in the Village, the 28th Annual Art By The Falls in Chagrin, Ohio, the 19th Annual Old Worthington Art Festival in Columbus, Ohio, and my favorite Boston Mills Artfest in Peninsula, Ohio. Later summer art shows include Westerville, Medina, Akron Arts Expo at Hardesty Park, and of course Tremont. Thanks to all who supported me this last year and look forward to seeing you all again. Stay tuned for more information on times and dates as they become available. Cheers!
