do.

it's a highlight of every summer; though always raining or blazing hot.
this year it was both. bonus!
we got there early enough to get a great parking spot and enjoy a post-rainstorm breeze. it started out as the perfect day to be outside. after a couple hours it became quite hot, but not entirely miserable. 

they had a fantastic area of activities for kids. piper was able to contribute to a large painting, listen to poetry, and watch beautiful ballet dancers.
it was neat to see her interact with different forms of art...
because of the rainstorm and the location of the kids' area, we got very muddy...
there were different bands playing, lots of fantastic food, and of course great people watching...
i always find the art festival very inspiring. it makes me want to run to the art supply store!

a couple of my favorite artists from last year were back...
signe and genna grushovenko are a couple that paint together. i believe he paints the backdrop for each painting (usually in stripes/layers of color) and she recreates photographs (usually vintage images) atop the base. their aesthetics pair beautifully and i would love to own one of their pieces one day.
jodi perry creates simple land and farmscapes. at first sight, her paintings draw you in by their striking color and composition. then you notice the minute details that add a note of fancy. summer daydream features a young girl drifting away with her kite. it was chosen as this year's commemorative poster for the art fest. i bought one.
pam kehoe-peterson makes really creative and inspiring jewelry. she had some cute letter charms made from vintage typewriter keys so i asked if she had any with the letter Q. she didn't. but she did have a loose Q key that hadn't been worked into a necklace yet. and she gave it to me! isn't that cool? she told me to just have a jeweler drill a hole through it. i couldn't believe she just gave it to me!

the festivities continue today.
if you're local--go!
