We’ve been home for a month- it’s been luxurious! Got organized, spent some time on the beach, worked on new projects at a slower pace. I’ve really enjoyed having the time to work on some major pieces after our hectic winter and spring schedule- it left me slap worn out. In a few days we head to Madison, WI for the Art Fair on the Square– a huge, dynamic art show surrounding the state capitol building. It’s an impressive show and setting, sponsored by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.

we’re on Mifflin- #838
But the real kicker is the CHEESE! There is a shop called Fromagination on the square, with some seriously aged cheddar at their counter. I can’t wait to savor some again- it’s hard to find in Florida. I’ll let you know my favorites- they ship, you know.
Off to the Southernmost Point this weekend- we will be participating in the Old Island Days Art Festival in Key West once again. The Key West Art Center and Gallery hosts us on the streets of Old Town for this one of a kind event. We have lots of new work to share, and we will be sure to bring back lots of pictures of our favorite place!

Four shows (in a row) down, six to go- our Florida schedule is not for the faint of heart! This weekend we will be in Estero, FL (on the SW side) for the Coconut Point Art Festival. Lots of new work to show since our last visit there! Here’s the event information: Coconut Point Art Festival

This weekend is one of our favorite shows- ArtFest Fort Myers is held on the waterfront in a revitalized downtown setting- it’s happening! So much fun to be a part of this event, the crowds come out for a great selection of juried art, and to enjoy the shops and restaurants in a historic downtown setting. We will be in space #170 on Edwards Drive, in front of the yacht basin. I just finished this new tusk shell and carved mother of pearl necklace to share with you!
Crowds all weekend long!
ready for the show
Sarasota, FL is this weekend’s destination- we will be showing at the St. Armand’s Circle Art Festival. The circle is a really happening shopping and dining destination on the road to Lido Key- it’s a great place to spend the afternoon, and the art festival is a perfect addition to the scene. Come out and join the fun!
…a working weekend! This is the beginning of the season for Florida art shows, and we’re heading to one of our favorites- the Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art Festival. Great original art and craft, beautiful venue, great music, and food! Our friend Lisanne Robinson, who owns the funky, cool Beyond Useless Boutique on US 1 in downtown Sebastian, organizes the event- it’s as much fun as her shop! Come see our latest, including a new batch of long lariat necklaces.
one of our favorite shows is happening next weekend- the 17th annual Sebastian Riverfront Art and Music Festival! A beautiful setting, exceptional artwork, and a fun town to visit- make a day of it! Hot Pink is playing on Sunday, they’re a blast!
