Hosted by Clarkston Community Historical Society Art in the Village was my treat this Sunday.
I've called Clarkston my home for five years now, and enjoyed this art fair a few times. On my shopping list was local honey from Bee Booty (I'm so happy that Clarkston has several local bee keepers including Jodi Bee Honey Farms, who's jar of honey is still on mu shelf) and fudge for my family from Sweet Lane Fudge Factory.
Art in the Village filled Depot Park with talented artists and makers and gave me plenty of opportunity to chat as well as pick up few treasures for the upcoming holidays. It was so nice to meet local childrens book writer Jamie Ruthenberg who signed a book for me, and chat with Alicia from Pebble and Stone Jewelry. By the time I got to Droste Pottery stand, I really wished I had come with a bag. I have to say I have a soft spot in my heart for pottery steaming from my Latvian roots. And there were just a few pieces that were calling my name.
While the fair was filled with great artists, as a photographer, I want to give a shout out to guys ( Ross and Brennan) I got to chat with from Wood Print Shop. Its great that there is a local Michigan shop that let you put art on unique surface.
Below are few of the pieces and moments that caught my eye.
