Keuka Arts Festival This Weekend!

Red Tree Studio - Best in Jewelry, Athens ArtsFest 2014

Red Tree StudioBest in Jewelry, Athens ArtsFest 2014

I have a great fondness for the Keuka Lake area. After my dad retired at age 55, he owned a 125 acre tree farm for a bunch of years. I loved the drive down there and never missed a chance to hit up The Windmill Farm & Craft Market and Oak Hill Bulk Foods.

Poor Penn Yan has been through a lot lately with the recent flooding. I can hardly bear to look at the photos. There’s a bar/restaurant we used to have lunch at sometimes. I remember my sister and I taking our visiting cousin there once. Actually my most vivid memory of that trip is Scott making me laugh so hard, I squirted milk out my nose. (Sorry for the visual.) It was not in the restaurant, thank goodness, but in the car. My mom’s car. I remember turning on the windshield wipers, pretending they were on the inside, erasing all evidence, making us laugh harder.

Um, where was I? Oh! The many Rochester Artisans you’ll get to visit with at this year’s Keuka Arts Festival. Here they are!

I was lucky enough to be in Linda’s studio recently and she showed me some Keuka Lake pieces she was working on, specifically for this show. I’m not finding any photos of them so I’m sharing this custom dog panel because I love it.

Salvaged Windowpane Suncatcher, $10.

Salvaged Windowpane Star Suncatcher, $10.

In August of 2013 I began what I thought was going to be an easy challenge. Making colorful star shaped suncatchers from salvaged windowpanes. There were so many difficulties that I almost quit. After what I would call a truly inventive process, I do believe that the stars are past the prototype phase! Although every new window presents new obstacles to overcome, I will know better how to deal with these obstacles. My suncatchers are original, textural and radiant.

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!

Double Your Mayday Fun!

City Ad

Mayday Underground organizers Amanda Preske and Casey Wright listen to their artists – and so have decided to try a two-day show! Artists could apply for either day or both.

Isn’t it interesting that it’s the successful shows who ask how to improve? Poorly run shows never ask! I guess they don’t know how much they don’t know.

Following their now tradition of the May show being held at the Village Gate Atrium, the fall show will be held at the Main Street Armory. It’s an interesting old building – worth the price of admission (free!) just to see it, including the ladies room! And the first 25 shoppers through the door, receive a swag bag containing items donated by the artists. It’s noteworthy to mention, there’s always a line, waiting for the doors to open at 10:00.

I was telling a fellow artist the other day, a Mayday regular, that I remember going to the first show they held 4 years ago. It was in an old building on St. Paul, if I remember correctly. There was all this talk about an “indie” show and I had to see for myself what it was all about. I admit, I was skeptical – so skeptical I didn’t apply, which is a little unusual for me. Unlike some artists, I don’t mind trying a show in its first year, getting in on the ground floor, so to speak.

So I went to see for myself. Oh. Now I get it! I’ve been a fan ever since and have been honored to be accepted to a number of the shows.

Every May and November, when the acceptances come out, there’s a big brouhaha on our Rochester Artisans email list created by people unhappy they were not accepted. Like over the top, excessively unhappy. I honestly don’t get it. No other show seems to elicit this type of response.

I think it’s ageism, to be honest. Amanda and Casey are young women putting on a highly competitive show. And what’s this “indie” all about, anyway? Humans tend to attack what they don’t understand.

Simply put, “indie” is using traditional materials in new ways (embroidery done in a tattoo style) or using new materials in traditional ways (weaving baskets with computer cable). Ha! I started to type weaving baskets with telephone wire but that’s actually an old material in these wireless, cellular days.

I probably should not have brought up the brouhaha – because miraculously, it didn’t happen for this November show! Maybe we’ve finally hashed it to death. Amen! As I like to say, “There are a bazillion other shows and they just freed you up to apply to another show that is more suitable to your craft and where you’ll be more successful.”

It’s also a Sample Soap collection site so kindly Sample Soap Logobring your personal care items (toothpaste, toothbrushes, unopened toiletries, lotions, diapers, cosmetics). Sample Soap distributes them to the neediest citizens in the Greater Rochester, NY area.

And the Flower City Follies will be performing on Sunday at 3:00.

I highly recommend you stop by this weekend and see all the wonderful artists selling their handcrafted goods.
