The 4th annual Art on Nepessing St. art fair has just wrapped up. Another one is in the books; another year to reflect on what went well and what didn’t, and what we/I can do differently next year.
What went well for me personally:
The 4th annual Art on Nepessing St. art fair opens tomorrow! Friday June 2 from noon-8pm and Saturday June 3 from 10am-6pm I will be parked in my booth doing my part to promote the arts in Lapeer. I'll be peddling my classes, showing off the JKPP book, and will have mixed-media Mandalas, some random paintings (including a clearance sale section), and painted rocks for sale.
Today Cliff and I are assembling this year's Community Art Project, which will be revealed in the main art tent Friday. Stop by and take a look! While you're there, check out all the donated art that was featured in this year's art walk. You can bid on your favorite pieces in the silent auction throughout the art fair, up until Saturday at 4:30.
Saturday, please bring your kids! The kids' art activity tent is open Saturday from 11am - 4pm. And once again, they will be able to paint on an actual car (and possibly, a van too?) This was a really popular activity last year, adults wanted to get in on the act too.
New this year - we have a map listing all the vendors, along with the entertainment line-up. It will be available in the main gallery tent. Please note that the previously advertised chili cook-off has been cancelled. But there will still be food and beer and other beverages available in the Court Street entertainment area.
The weather forecast looks good (so far) ... no rain predicted until late Saturday night ... keeping fingers crossed it holds off until after clean-up. It should be a fun sun-and-art-filled weekend in downtown Lapeer!
