Our Saturday’s adventure took us to Artsplosure – Raleigh’s Art Festival. The quality of work at this show is amazing! A number of the juried artists travel from long distances to exhibit and sell at this festival, but there are also some North Carolina artists in attendance too. I’ve added a few of my favorites to my North Carolina Treasures link in the sidebar. And since I only have a time machine and not a transporter, I thought I share a few snapshots of the event with you.
One street view
Silk art in beautiful colors
I thought this concept was fun: Tea Bags!
By lunch time, this painting was taking shape.
Another street view
We wanted to purchase one or two of these wire art stars, but we forgot.
Speaking of lunch time: Pacific Rim style noodle dish cooked right in front of you.
Ironwood and turquoise - this guy has patience!
I can't imagine making these glass artworks, much less carefully packing them to transport them to shows.
I spent the most time looking through the photo prints by this artist. Looks like I'll have to put frames on my shopping list now.
Now's here's a real piece of art! What a creation! My daughter wants a dog just like this and all the others we saw visiting the show.
This owl painting caught my daughter's attention,too.
Here you can see the progress this artist had made by dusk.
