Many of the artisans have been with the show since the beginning. However, new artists come on board each year to provide variety and fine craftsmanship in many media. This year’s juried outdoor show will include paintings, prints, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, glasswork, and more. Original works of art will be available for purchase and exhibitors will be on hand to discuss and sell their work. This year’s musical line includes the inimitable Susan Greenbaum, Illbillys, TIN CAN FISH BAND, Bluz Catz and the incomparable Janet Martin. The unique selection of contemporary art, fantastic local musicians, great food and a loyal neighborhood crowd round out this event. Work by Marti Mocahbee.
