The artists of Fine Arts in the Valley, are preparing for our show, which is just around the corner. We have been working all summer turning out new works. Yet, like most artists I know there is never enough time to do everything you had in mind. Somehow it all comes together and it is one of my favorite shows. Spending two weekends with friends, at a beautiful Amish built event barn, with wrap around deck, glass doors on two sides, windows way up high to let in lots of natural light. The view, well, if you have not been out to our show in the past, this year I think will be one of the best yet. The leaves are already turning and I suspect that during our show it may be one of the peak weekends for color in the trees. The barn overlooks a pasture with cows, apple orchard, ducks, a mated pair of eagles and the mountains to the rear. It is a lovely way to spend the day, autumn color, great friends, and amazing artwork.
The show will have a little something for just about everyone. We have small items just right for those holiday gifts. Lots of new works and two new artists are joining us this year, Christopher Proto, potter and Lisa LeMair, jewelry and fiber arts. Back again are Homer Yost, sculpture and drawings, Tracy Tousignaut Reed and Sarah Simpson, photographers, Marilu Tousignaut, sratchboard and yarn works, and myself Linda Harrison-Parsons, oils, pastels and handmade paper.
