Fall arts & crafts fairs
It's almost time for Southern art fairs to begin springing up on the weekends. It's also a good time to start thinking about the Christmas season and early shopping. On most weekends, you can find an arts and crafts festival with artisans' tents spread over acres of county parks and down historical streets. This particular photo was taken in downtown Calhoun, GA, during their "More Than a Taste of Calhoun" event. That's Sandra painting en plein air (means in open air or outdoors) where she has set up her easel and is capturing on canvas what she sees. So be sure to check your local newspaper for the art fairs in your area. You can find beautiful original paintings and meet the artists in person. Maybe we'll see you at the North Georgia "Prater's Mill Country Fair" or maybe the "Creative Arts Guild Festival". Stop in and say "Hi!"
