Four Fun Fall Shows

Say that four times fast!  The fun begins with the South End Burlington Art Hop in Burlington, VT this weekend, September 6-8.  The Art Hop is a HUGE event with over 500 artists showing their work at over 100 locations!  This is the first year I’ll be participating at WND & WVS, a board shop at 688 Pine St., Suite C on the south side of the building.  That’s #19 on the map.

In honor of the location I’ll be showing one of my fishy mobiles “Deep Blue Sea” made from carved wood, fabric, paper and wire, in addition to other pieces.  There will also be another kinetic artist and 2 stained glass artists at our site.  We’re just a block north of Champlain Chocolates, so it’s an easy hop from us to them, or visa versa.  There’s even a free bus to take you up and down Pine St. on Saturday from 6:15 a.m. to 6:40pm, so be sure to visit!

 

Autumn is my favorite season when our local Vermont landscape explodes with color.  It’s a great time to visit Vermont and see our famous foliage so for the 3rd year in a row, the Vermont Crafts Council is sponsoring a state wide Open Studio Weekend, October 5 & 6.  Just like the spring version, artists will open their studios to share their work and process with whom ever stops by.  I will open my doors at The Granary, 29 Union St in Brandon from 10 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday.  You can watch as I find the delicate balance point in my mobiles and you’re sure to find some colorful, leafy kinetic sculptures cascading from the ceiling.  There are 7 local artists participating so it’s well worth you while to visit Brandon.  You can find state maps and details here.

 

The following weekend is the 30th Weston Craft Show on Columbus Day Weekend,  October 11-13, from 10-5 each day. Fall Flurry mobile This show features Vermont artists working in clay, glass, metal and other mediums.  This is my first time at this show with my kinetic sculptures and you will find me on the lower level.  Weston is a cute little VT town with a Vermont Country Store just 5 minutes from the show site.  If you’re out leaf peeping, this is the place to visit!  Find show details here.

 

I’ve decided to show only at the  Paradise City Marlborough show this year, November 22-24 at the Royal Plaza Trade Center.  This Paradise Show is more intimate than the Northampton show and features every kind of fine art and craft with approximately 200 exhibitors.  Just in time for the holidays, its the perfect time to shop for friends, family and yourself!  Please visit me in Booth #422, where you’ll find my mobiles and kinetic sculptures and kinetic wall pieces too.  You’ll find a $2.00 coupon toward admission here.

Enjoy the cooler temps of Autumn and I hope to see you at some of my Four Fun Shows!
