Art Fair Season is Upon Us

Moe's Ache Studio was  featured recently in an Indianapolis Star article about summer art fairs in Indiana.  We are fortunate to have so many great art shows and talented artists in and around our community.  It seems like almost every show I do always has a large number of Bloomington and Brown County artists represented.  I don't know whether there is a "magic meridian" that runs through this area attracting them, but when artists find a creative atmosphere and a supportive audience, they stay and good art flows!  You won't need to travel far this summer to enjoy their offerings.  With gas at $4.07/gal this is a good thing!  Check out "Summer Art Fairs:  This season is a work of art" to get the "inside" scoop on the upcoming shows.
Kicking off the list is the Broad Ripple Art Fair,  May 21-22.  We'll be in booth #90 (in the artist field) with some brand new mosaics.  'Hope to see you there!

Awesome Artist Yard Sale May 13-14

I'm psyched!  For the past two years I have had a booth at this fun event, however this year I will be attending as a shopper and helper only.  I'd like to say that I created no "mistakes or seconds" this year.  I did have a few "not next to perfect" mosaic creations however they were scooped up earlier this year leaving me with little art work to sell at the Awesome Artist Yard Sale.  A busy show schedule has left me with little time to clean the studio, so this year I will be shopping instead of selling.
In addition to the art, "junk" and "funk" offered by the artists cleaning out their studios and closets, the sale will feature a "big tent" sale with larger items (furniture, art work, display fixtures and collectables to name a few).  Lunch will be served with proceeds helping to purchase a tent for the children's activity booth at this year's Fourth Street Festival of the Arts and Crafts.
It's a fun event filled with some great bargains and unusual stuff from some of Bloomington's most unusual artists.  Join us Friday and Saturday at 1114 Brooks Drive from 9 a.m- 4 p.m.  You know you need some new spring "stuff"!
