Art in the Park Chestertown




Saturday was "Art in the Park" here in Chestertown. It was my first year as a vendor. I had a lot of fun seeing good friends and meeting new ones. Some of our Arts League volunteers and artists are just terrific folks that are fun to be around.
My new 'mini masks' were a big hit! These are made from the cardboard forms found inside of new shoes, kindly donated to me by Paul's Shoes here in Chestertown. There were so many chuckles and smiles as visitors walked along my fence. It was very rewarding. I did manage to sell a few of the mini masks as well.
This is only my second outdoor art event, so I am remaining open minded. Even though I often grumble 'never again' while preparing or packing up after the fair, it is always a great time once I am set up in the park. I figure there are worse ways to spend a Saturday.
Also I can't believe how perfect the "new-to-us" mini-van is for this type of thing. I looked at it lined up with all the other silver mini-vans as we artists packed up our wares and thought, this is most excellent!

I love the way the masks are displayed! Not surprised you found homes for some of those, they are so neat! And what a variety of fun objects and paintings you had to offer...glad you got to enjoy this event. Oh, and from now on I will refer to all silver mini-vans as "undetectable carrier of unidentified art objects"...there goes another UCUAO! That may not catch on, too many vowels...

Great setup with the masks. I like what you've been doing artistic wise lately. It's awe inspiring.

The cool thing is the more you do it the easier the tear-down part becomes...you get more organized and find out what works and what doesn't. I think you're amazing for doing this ... the faces do look awesome displayed that way... keep up the fabulous work honey!
