Hello to all my Blog BFF's! The second annual Buckhead Spring Arts and Crafts Festival has been tentatively scheduled for the weekend of May 16, and I'm especially excited to be a part of this awesome event because my painting was selected to be on the festival poster this year. Huge thanks to Randall and Patrick at Atlanta's Foundation for Public Spaces, for giving me such an amazing opportunity! The date for the festival will be finalized after the Chastain Park summer concert series has been announced on April 2. Last year's event included 200 fine art and fine craft artists and artisans, an "antiques alley," a professional children's play area, live music, and delicious foods and beverages. Over 15,000 visitors enjoyed the beautiful Atlanta weather, as they viewed the works on display, and more than 90% of the artist participants were from Georgia. Since the same folks that organized the Chastain Arts Festival in October are coordinating this one, it's sure to be a great venue. Artists' applications are still being accepted, so, if you're in the area, I hope you'll come join me in the park.
Here's the original painting:
