The Here and Now
I have procrastinated and then procrastinated some more about starting to blog but, like most people now, I have extra time on my hands so I am embracing blogging. So, here I am to talk to you about the Spotsy Arts Festival and more and, in the future, our Exhibitors.
As I am sure you know, having to cancel the 2020 Art Festival was heart breaking. Not only for me but also was our Exhibitors – past, present and the new one we were welcoming to our art festival this year. Also, I was saddened to learn that another art festival sponsor unexpectedly went into bankruptcy and left many in the “lurch”, so to speak.
The Who, What and Why
Today’s Why — I have participated in art festivals in the past and know how hard we all work to prepare for these events. I know that we work diligently and with passion throughout our so called down time to create new and wonderful works of art to share with you at upcoming art festival season. I know that we do this to share our passion for the art we create. I know a lot of other things too but I think it is important to understand how hard we have to work just to spend a weekend at an art festival and to share our work with those who stop and take the time to look at our creations and to talk to us.
Having said all of this, I hope it will not only encourage you to visit our art festivals in 2021 but it will also encourage you to stop and talk with the artists.
Did you notice that I said festivals, plural? That wasn’t a typo. We have two scheduled for 2021 both will be held on the courthouse grounds. The first will be April 10 and 11 and the second will be August 14 and 15 – our usual weekend. Mark your calendars now, you won’t want to miss either of these events.
Lastly, for today, I want to give a big shout out to Savannah at the Styles Agency for updating our website. If you are reading this, you know that we now have a blog. This is all new to me, but I am hoping that you will be able to comment. I will use this to not only promote our Art Festival but to spotlight our Exhibitors. If you have any comments or suggestions please let us know!
