Jerry Brown Arts FestivalMonday, March 06, 2006
We had a nice time at the Jerry Brown Arts Festival this weekend. It was small - probably only 20 or so artists - but we met some really nice people, and brought home three things...
This is a pretty different-looking vase (the inside vase part isn't full-length - it goes down about halfway) made by Ron Morris, who teaches at Bevill State. Ron and his wife are both **really** nice and fun to chat with.
Ron calls it his 'pie plate' vase, because of the nice detail along the edge - that made me like it even more:
This little birdhouse was made by Mark Williams from Bogart, Georgia. I'm going to hang it up outside this week:
Mark also made this:
I know, she's a little....different! I say she looks like she has stage fright, but Av's not so sure (heh!).
Mark also does a lot of face jugs (there's a little about the history behind face jugs here), and one of his galleries is showing some of his works here.
Someone at the festival whom I've never met before was Martha Beadle from Florence - she makes very different mixed media needlework pieces...there are pictures of her work at the America Oh Yes Gallery here. City Art Gallery has this one. Very nice!
