If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again! The Spring Craft Show was largely a rainout, but I'm betting fall will be beautiful!
As the event planners say, "Shoppers will find many handcrafted items, from fun to beautiful, displays by local businesses, and lots of delicious food and beverages. Our Fall Show has 350 plus."
My painting, "Beyond Fences", has been selected as one of thirty appearing in the Third Annual Pitman Art Stroll in Pitman, NJ. The original painting will be on display (and available for purchase) at the Pitman Gallery & Art Center for the entire month of September, and a poster-sized banner will be hung from one of the lamp posts along Broadway in Pitman.
I am super excited to have been selected as one of the vendors for this juried show!
"Whether you are in search of hand-woven clothing or unique children’s designs, a perfect piece of stained or blown glass, exquisite fine or fashion jewelry or some whimsical metal sculptures for your garden-the Collingswood Festival could end your search!
If original watercolor, pastel, collage or oil painting intrigues you, if you appreciate fine photography, turned wood or heirloom toys, if you have a special friend or family member who requires a really unusual gift-the Festival art can fit that niche."
I will be setting up shop in the Vendor's Village in Pitman, NJ (down at the end of Broadway) during July's 4th Friday event, bringing along lots of work just perfect for gifting!
"Come stroll along Broadway & enjoy live music, awesome vendors, classic cars, great shops, old fashioned games, good restaurants, beer, wine and lots of fun."
We will be at this first-ever event in Glassboro, which promises to be so much fun! Music, food, artists and glassblowers doing demos, public art dedication and more!
"In addition to dedicating a new bronze sculpture in Town Square, this inspiring festival will include dozens of local and area glassblowers, sculptors, painters, metal-smiths, and wood-workers, plus a multitude of other hand-crafters that will offer their items for sale and be demonstrating their skills and craftsmanship right before your eyes! The night market offers visitors the chance to browse a variety of goods while basking in a festival atmosphere full of food and other al fresco fun on Rowan Boulevard and the Town Square."
I will be one of the vendors at this brand-new event at Sunset Auditorium on Laurel Avenue in Pitman, NJ.
Yoga Inspired is hosting its first Solstice Soul Fest. There will be several local yoga studios and vendors in attendance to help celebrate the transition into summer. Solstice occurs twice a year, and is the one day when darkness and light are evenly balanced. It is a symbolic transition from the short days of winter to the bright, long days of summer. There will be live music by Zen that Beat. Suitable for all levels, this yoga session is a perfect way to honor the sun, the beginning of summer and the light in each one of us.
Swing by Lavender Koi Yoga in Berlin, NJ for their first ever The Day of the Goddess Fair, an event designed to kick summer off with a bang! There will be lots of positive energy at the space, and some of the other vendors will be selling jewelry, yoga- and goddess-related clothing, angel card and tarot readings, herbal and vegan products, and more. There will be live music and even food trucks!
I will be there selling artwork including lotuses on canvas, Buddhas, art tambourines and greeting cards. I really hope you'll stop by this amazing space for this event!
Kelly Ramsdell: Art & Words will be at both Pitman Craft Shows this year. For the spring show, we will be in space X151, at the corner of Theatre Avenue and Broadway in Uptown Pitman. Come out to say hello, to look at lots of original art, and to take home some art and greeting cards! I will be joined in my booth this spring by my friend Rita Mitchell and her business, Jularee -- she makes handmade jewelry using sterling silver, copper, gold, and gemstones.
