Yellow Springs art fair turns 30
- Published: August 7, 2013
This year Village Artisans’ celebrates 30 years and its 30th annual invitational art fair, Art on the Lawn. Over 100 vendors are expected at this year’s Art on the Lawn, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10 on the grounds of Mills Lawn Elementary School (200 S. Walnut St.)
Village Artisans, a 20-member co-op store located at 100 Corry Street, annually organizes the art show as a way to support its shop. This year’s new and returning artists will offer jewelry in gold and silver, beadwork with seeds and metal, paper-craft watercolors and acrylics of nature and landscape scenes, drawings, caricatures, beeswax candles, garden and yard art, ceramics, stained glass, pressed flowers, masks, fiber art, leather accessories, scarves, fused glass bugs and more.
Returning to the juried show is last year’s “Best in Show,” eco-spiritual artist Kotah Moon, who creates metal sculptures with spiritual, celestial, fantasy and nature themes from 100 recycled metals “as common as a 55-gallon drum lid or as obscure as the hood of a 1929 model A Ford,” according to her website.
During Art on the Lawn, Village Artisans will give away a huge “Gift of Art Basket” brimming with handcrafted art from the 20 artists of Village Artisans, including paintings, jewelry, wood carving and word turning, photographs, books, calligraphy, a journal, fabric art, glass work, ceramics and more. All attendees can sign up to win the basket, for which a drawing will take place at 4:30 p.m.
