Stay Connected with Beaver Creek Throughout the Weekend!

Standard

Picture from the Beaver Creek Webcam

Are you unable to make it to the 23rd Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival this weekend (July 31 – August 1)? We have some good news for you! As long as you are near a computer, you can have access to the art festival. The website, BeaverCreek.com, has a webcam that updates every 5 minutes. If you would like to see the webcam, you can click on the “BeaverCreek.com” link in the previous sentence. One of the locations of the webcam captures the Family Ice Arena. The picture above shows some artists setting up. Throughout the weekend, you will be able to see crowds of people and the artists at their booths!

I have one more thing I would like to share with you. You can feel a little more a part of Beaver Creek if you watch and see what some of the artists have to offer. Today, on Channel 8 during Good Morning Vail, there were interviews of 5 different artists who are participating in the Beaver Creek Art Festival.  Each artist is very talented and brings something unique to Beaver Creek this weekend.

You should definitely watch these interviews to learn a little more about each artist (whether you are attending or not attending Beaver Creek)! You can watch them here:

Interview with our Show Coordinator, Helayne.

Interview with Diana Lienemann.

Interview with Darren Kensington.

Interview with Tim Zandee.

Interview with Benjamin Stielow & Kevin Muggleton.

I hope this information was helpful in making you feel like you are at the show. I know it’s not the same as actually being present at the art festival, but at least you can know what’s happening at Beaver Creek. And if you are attending the Beaver Creek Art Festival this weekend, I hope I helped you learn how to gain more access.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

This Weekend: What To Expect In Beaver Creek

Standard

Scenic Beaver Creek

Doesn’t this picture make you want to visit Beaver Creek? This photo was taken by Howard and Darrin last year when they attended the Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival in 2009. The view is breathtaking! What a perfect place to spend the weekend.

Because I do not have photos to share with you from the 23rd Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival (but I will share them next week!), I am going to tell you what to expect! Last year was a great show, and we do have returning artists who will be attending the show once again.

Crowd Shot: Beaver Creek 2009

Here is a great photograph of the crowd that was in Beaver Creek last August. It looks like the Vail Valley had tons of people last summer! This summer should be just as excellent. Here is our first returning artist I would like to share with you:

Rob Stenberg

Rob Stenberg is a very talented artist, who will be returning to Beaver Creek again this year. His uses acrylic paints for his “one-and-only”, unique pieces. His work is always stunning. You can see more of Rob Stenberg’s work if you check out his website: HERE . Next, we have another gifted artist:

Tim Zandee

Tim Zandee is a one-of-a-kind. Tim was present at our Beaver Creek Art Festival in 2009, and he will be returning this weekend for our 2010 Beaver Creek Art Festival. Tim specializes in photography of natural scenes. The way he captures a picture is magical. His work is very inspiring. Unfortunately, I do not have a website for Tim, but if I did, I would share it with you!

I hope you are excited about the 23rd Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival this weekend. If you would like to find out more information, you can click HERE.

We Will Be Back!

Standard

Last weekend, we had our Indialantic Craft Festival (July 17-18), which turned out to be a fabulous craft show. Now, we are on a little break. No worries, we will be back very soon! Our next craft show is not until September. It is the 2nd Annual Downtown Venice Labor Day Weekend Craft Festival on September 4th & 5th.

Because we had a great craft festival season thus far in 2010, I wanted to share with you some photos from earlier in the year.

Dunedin Craft Festival - February 2010

This picture is a crowd shot from our Dunedin Craft Festival that is always held the 3rd weekend of February. With Dunedin being so close to Tampa, it draws large crowds year after year. This craft festival has been around for almost 20 years!! Our 19th Annual Dunedin Craft Festival will be on February 19-20, 2011.

Downtown Delray Beach - February 2010

This craft piece was present at the Downtown Delray Beach Craft Festival back in February. When I saw this, I knew I had to share it with you. This is definitely very eclectic! You can check out more unique pieces, like this one, at our 14th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Craft Festival on February 26-27, 2011.

Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival - March 2010

This is another fine craft piece that I saw and had to share with you. This is from the Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival that was in March. This looks like something that would be perfect to decorate a Florida home! You will be able to find other pieces similar to this at our 15th Annual Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival on March 12-13, 2011.

We look forward to seeing you at the rest of our 2010 craft festivals along with our winter 2011 craft festivals! See you soon.

Boulder Bound!

Boulder Crowd Shot (2009)

Guess where we are headed to this weekend? We will be in Boulder, Colorado for the 3rd Annual Boulder Festival of the Arts on 29th Street! Where are you gong to be? Hopefully, you will be joining us! The art festival is located on 29th Street, a trendy and chic area, which is a perfect place for affluent shoppers. Additionally, the nation’s best artists and crafters will be present. To me, this sounds like a great place to spend the weekend. Below, I have pictures of several artists who attended our Boulder show last year:

Dana & Greg Miller

Dana Miller is a talented artist who was present at the festival last year. She specializes in freelance work, decorative paintings, 3-D work and mural painting. Here is another artist who we were lucky to have join us:

Matt Suess

This artist is Matt Suess. He is a full-time art landscaper photographer. His photography is absolutely breathtaking. You can see that for yourself in the picture above.

Clearly, very talented artists are present at this art show. We are looking forward to what this weekend will bring. Next week, I will share all the scoop with you.

See you in Bouder, Colorado this weekend! Safe travels!

Picturesque Aspen

Downtown Aspen: July 2010

We heard many interesting things about Aspen this weekend, and of course, they are all great things. First, the weather was perfect. We all know that beautiful weather does help make a show that much better. Also, we heard some other interesting stories. We heard that one artist said they were going to be able to pay for their kids’ college with the amount they made over the weekend. Isn’t that amazing?

Relaxing in Aspen

Secondly, we heard there was a wide variety of different people at the art show. The GOP from Mississippi was in town. Additionally, many Florida residents, who have second homes in Aspen, were at the show. We had people from all over! You can see (in the picture above this paragraph) all the people relaxing and enjoying their day at the art festival.

These pictures make me jealous of all the vendors and visitors that were in Aspen this past weekend. It is absolutely beautiful there!

Anyways, I want to remind you about our art festival this weekend (July 24-25)! It is our 3rd Annual Boulder Festival of the Arts on 29th Street. See you there!
