Jerry Brown Arts Festival

Monday, March 08, 2010

We had a great time at the Jerry Brown Arts Festival this weekend.


Tom Henry was there from Philadelphia MS with his whirligigs:

Charlie Lucas was the guest artist - going on about how big the baby is getting (we haven't seen him since Kentuck):

He was set up right in front as you enter, and brought assemblages that he is known for as the 'Tin Man', as well as several paintings:

It was *huge* that the festival was able to bring in Charlie Lucas (Charlie Lucas!) as its guest artist.

My new friend Lowry Wilson, Old South Images, won the show's first place in 2D art. He won first place for color photography at the People's Choice Competition in the Meridian Museum of Art in 2008 and second place last year. Next year, they are honoring him with a solo gallery show (nice!).

His next festival is in May at the Cellular South / GumTree Festival.

Jerry Brown was there setting up to do a demonstration:

...the best face jugs.

His wife Sandra was going on about how big the baby is getting, too!

Av brought home this Jerry Brown face jug:

We're Saints season ticket holders so with Alabama winning the National Championship and the Saints winning the Super Bowl, you can imagine how happy he is, especially with a face jug that has 'Who Dat' on it!

There were many other really great artists there - Marilyn Huey with her baskets, Tim Pace with bottle trees and other metal art (which...we bought one thing that I will have to show in another post!), the Crossroads Art Alliance with art including Kathy Fetters and Glenn House Sr., Robert Taylor's metalwork, James Brassfield's handmade knives and turkey calls, I somehow missed George Jones and his brooms, and Missy Miles with her fantastic painted and carved gourds.
