You are bored to death.
The children want something to do. You check current newspapers and internet to
see if any free activities are available.
You see a notice about
an Art Fair. You have never been to an Art Fair and you know very little about
painting, drawing, sculpture, or anything else which might be presented.
What do you think? Why
not try attending. It will give you something to do and, after all, it is free!
Let’s assume you decide
to attend an art fair in your home community or area. You are going to view a
lot of things produced by people hoping their work will attract visitors.
You will see many
different items, in many different styles. You will decide what you like and
what you don’t like. At most art fairs, the creator of the art will be there to
speak with you, your family members, and friends. Your group will be able to
make comments and ask questions about the art piece.
I would like to introduce you what you might see at an Art Fair
I live near Excelsior
MN. This city is perched on the side of a very large lake. A piece of land
provides a site for community events.
I would like to
illustrate what you may find if you attend an art fair.
I plan to do this through
photographs. I received permission from the artists to present examples of
use a lot of different materials. These include metal and more, wood, paint, fabric,
mosaic material, camera and lens, glass, copper and wood.
If you do attend an Art
Fair, I hope that you and your group enjoy yourselves. It can be a pleasant
experience and an opportunity to learn from the artist.
Art is an entity produced by those
who consider it important. It requires thought, practice, and desire to produce
something which will satisfy others. Art has no boundaries. It does not belong
to one branch of work. It belongs to the creator of the work and the person who
