We had just a beautiful day yesterday in downtown Evansville, Indiana at Funk in the City. Traffic was great and people were having a great time. Good food down one side and fantastic art all around a beautiful rustic rock formation fountain that is in a tree lined historic neighborhood with beautiful old homes that celebrates the arts. I didn’t take my camera and now I wish I had to share with you what I was seeing.
There were many different styles and creations and I was proud to be a part of it. I didn’t notice a lot of people carrying around purchases, but there were some. We (GeeJayCreations) sold a few items and lots of people took business cards. Not the best show for us, but I had a great time and met some really nice and friendly people. I also offer a few of the things that I alone create (ArtsyFartsyMe), like my painted pots and I sold my poppies pot to a very nice lady who was crazy for poppies. I plan to paint another soon, since I was quite fond of that pot in my kitchen! ha ha
One person I noticed was an abstract painter, Don Clark, that I met there who was selling a lot of his paintings. What I noticed was the amount of men that carried them around. He had brilliant colors in them and most were framed but his prices were surprisingly low. His style must appeal to men because I have found that it is usually women that I see walk around with purchases. Don was a super nice guy and helped me unload my display and tent. I’m glad for him. That is just about the best thing about these shows, meeting other artists that are so interesting and nice people.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful Sunday.
