Art In the Highlands
Bo and I were thankful for the opportunity to be part of Art in the Highlands the weekend of September 18 and 19th on the beautiful grounds of Louisville Collegiate School in the highlands area of Louisville. We love the area to begin with and so when we found out we were juried picked to be a part of the art fair we were excited. Our booth was in the same row as known KY artists. It really hit when Jared mentioned to me "Mom, you used to be the one to go to these art fairs and now look you are part of it. " That is really when it sunk in that yes we are part of such a creative outlet and are among a group of talented artists.
Despite the heat that weekend, we did enjoy the fair and being part of it. I will already apologize for the lack of pictures. We only had time to take pictures before we actually opened up on the first morning. There was entertainment and the Juicy Lucy(Juicy Lucy is the first mobile glassblowing studio of her kind. Traditionally, glassblowing equipment is contained in a trailer pulled by a vehicle. Juicy Lucy's equipment is creatively and efficiently designed to pull out and be operated from the rear and side of the van.) was also present with the glass blowers from Glassworks working in the heat. Other tents featured hands on workshops for children and adults.

Besides enjoying the time at the fair and meeting new fellow artist friends I came home with some goodies. :) A beautiful copper bracelet from Dancin Dog Designs, a lampwork ring from Beads by Jackie and a beautiful scarf from my neighboring booth The Tangled Web.
I want to thank Jennifer H. from Louisville Collegiate and Lynn C. from Woodland Gallery for giving Bo and I such a great opportunity to be seen. We also met other talented artists that were so friendly and welcomed us into the area.
I hope you all have a great evening. :)
