Art in the Arboretum is this Sunday, 1-5

The long term forecast is for sunny skies and a high of 73 degrees for Sunday afternoon. Sounds like a great time to get out and take in some art in a beautiful setting. What I like about this venue is the diversity of items and artists you see. Excellent music and food for your enjoyment will be there. So, instead of brunch, come on out and get some lunch in the park and stop by my booth. I'll be at number 4.

Art in the Yard

Here's your chance to catch some fun art from a few of our excellent artists in a local setting. So if you're out and about, maybe from the Tate Street festival, drop on by and tell them you saw their ad on my blog. I'll probably drop by after the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market. See you there!

Thanks to the Folks at Grove Winery.....

....for a great time out in Gibsonville. Lots of interesting people met and friends made. What else could one want from life? The demos went well with lots of people stopping by to look and talk. Made some copper objects and rings and gave away a few. Hope this instilled an appreciation in our metalworking endeavors and maybe inspired a few to try it. See you at Arts In the Arboretum next month.

Coming up this weekend is my first time at the Grove Winery in Gibsonville. I will be dragging some of my tools over there and doing some fold forming demonstrations, also, some general cold forging of copper. Hope the showers hold off, It wouldn't be much fun doing demos in the rain. The Winery says,
Art at the Grove

Mark your calendars. September 13th & 14th is the big Crafts in the Grove week-end where we will be featuring the work of local artists and crafters on the patio. Painting, photography, jewelry, carving, pottery, glass blowing and handmade furniture. We'll also have demonstrations, food, wine tastings, a special free grape tasting and horse-drawn carriage tours of our estate vineyards. Fun for the whole family.

Hope to see you there. This past weekend at the Rockingham County Folks Festival we had a great time with the folks up in Wentworth, NC. The Rockingham County Arts Council put on this festival. With the crowds being unsure about the extent of hurricane Hanna Saturday, we started off a little slow. Things picked up on Sunday with a small but enthusiastic crowd. Lots of interesting people met along with seeing some old friends in the RC Pottery Guild which was set up beside me. Next year, without Hanna, I'm sure a big crowd will show. Hope to see some of you folks at Crafts at the Grove this weekend.
