There must be something wrong with our calendar! Could there have been a mix-up? It is a rare occasion when we do not have an art or craft festival happening on a weekend. Our next art festival is not until August 28th & 29th, and it is the 13th Annual Shadyside: The Art Festival on Walnut Street. With this blog, I would like to share with you some of the artists that will be participating in this fantastic art festival. We want to get you as excited as we are! Next week, I will continue to give you more information and include several more artists that will be attending.
Our first artist is…
Kana Handel! She will be joining us at Shadyside, and we are very excited. Kana is originially from Tokyo, Japan. She studied art at the Musashino Art University in Tokyo. Then, Kana moved to the United States in 1992, and now she resides in Gainesville, Florida. One of my favorite quotes from her web page is: “Because there are already too many negative things in the world, being the artist that I am, I want to create positive energy in my work”. You can see more of her artwork and read her bio HERE.
The second artist I would like to share with you is Pat Little. Pat Little creates digital images that are spectacular. The colors are simply incredible! This image above was created from 2000+ image combinations. If you would like to see more of Pat’s artwork, click HERE.
Next, we have Barbara Nelson! Barbara has always loved jewelry, and she feels fortunate to be able to work with silver and gold. All of her pieces are very unique. Anyone would be lucky to own one! Barbara has a fantastic web site where you can learn more about her artwork HERE.
Our fourth and final artist that I am going to share with you today is David Royce. David creates unique pieces from glass blowing. You can see from the picture above that he is very talented. This is something he has had a passion for since he was 15 years old! If you would like to see more of David Royce’s beautiful creations, click HERE.
I hope this created even more excitement for our 13th Annual Shadyside… The Art Festival on Walnut Street that is going to be held next weekend! We will continue to supply you with more details as we get closer to the art festival.
