Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!

Brockport Arts Festival

2013 Poster

I don’t want to jinx anything – but the weather looks to be perfect for this weekend’s Brockport Arts Festival. Please note below that we have two award winners from last year’s Brockport Arts Festival. Rochester Artisans actually had two more winners, but I don’t know if they are participating again this year – sure would think so!

Here’s a sneak preview of what our Rochester Artisan members will have for you!

You can’t swing a dead cat at this weekend’s Corn Hill Festival, without hitting a Rochester Artisan! There is a ton of hand crafted goodness in the names listed below. I hope you get to visit each and every one – they should be easy to spot with their yellow and black Proud Member of Rochester Artisans signs.

Last Chance for Outdoor Festivals

October can be tricky here in upstate New York. It can mean shorts & t-shirts or it can mean parkas and boots! That Mother Nature is such a hoot!

This weekend, October 8, 9 and 10, is forecast in the former – mid-seventies and sunny. It’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy all that NY has to offer. May I suggest starting with a hearty apple pancake breakfast at the LaFayette Apple Festival, south of Syracuse?

And Sunday will be a nice day for a scenic hour-plus drive south of Rochester to Letchworth State Park for the annual Arts & Crafts Show presented by the Arts Council for Wyoming County. If you’re lucky enough to have Monday off for Columbus Day, the show is open then too!

Wear your comfy walking shoes, top off the tank with gas – and set out on an adventure. Art plus scenic New York State – would could be better?

Check the websites linked below – and be sure to say hello to our Rochester Artisan friends who will be there.

Sunday Saved the Weekend

My heart went out to my artist friends participating in the art & craft shows this weekend. Saturday, in these parts, was chilly and rainy. Thankfully, Sunday showed up just like it was supposed to, full of sunshine and renewed spirit!

I printed 100 of the new business cards that I designed last night. Those images are just your garden variety Microsoft clip art. If there’s a member among us who wants to take a stab at making this better, have at it. I really like the concept though, of including as many mediums as space allows. And you know I love little boxes all lined up nice and neat. I’m pretty happy with this overall – but am more than happy to consider anything else similar!

I spent about 4 hours at Fairport Canal Days today, hanging out with artist friends, meeting Rochester Crafters in person whom I only knew online and of course recruiting new members. I gave out all 100 of those business cards so I’ll be reprinting more when I head to my studio shortly. I’ve now added my personal contact information on the back – not sure why I didn’t think of that earlier.

Here are some of our artist members I talked to today. Unfortunately I didn’t photograph every member I ran into because sometimes I got so busy yakking with them, I forgot! Shocking, I know. Click on the images to visit the artist’s website.
