A Big Stone Arch Festival THANK YOU!!!

I had a blast over Father's Day weekend at the Stone Arch Festival of the Arts.

I didn't get out much past my booth to check out the other artists at the event. I heard there was lots of great work. So anyway, here's some pics of the booth:

The amazing and beautiful Miss Letta Wren. Letta was a huge help on Sunday. She filled in for my wife and helped me get rid of a ton of prints and posters. She's good stuff. Thanks again Letta!

I got third place in something. One of the staff girls stopped by the booth on Sunday and said I won 3rd place. I asked her "for what? What did I do?" She said it was a ribbon for getting third in my category. I'm assuming that's printmaking or something like that. So yay. Totally unexpected.

This is Reverborama, he's a fellow bike lover and totes around little flasks with a sticker on them. I was stoked to see him again (I'd seen him at Craftstravaganza before), and especially when he's bringing gifts along. Thanks so much Bob! Great to see you. Nice shirt too.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Festival. And special thanks to everyone who bought some stuff, and also to the event staff, and Sara Collins who organized the event, and asked me to participate. I had a great time, and hope to do it again next year.

Brick by Brick 2007

Brick by Brick is an event designed to revitalize the creative energy of the Warehouse District and bring back the spirit that defined it as the creative center of Minneapolis. Just as this community was built, brick by brick, the stories continue to grow and the influence on the local arts scene is embedded forever. (Lifted straight from Brick by Brick's homepage) ;)

Here's my submission:

Stone Arch Festival of the Arts

Hey! it's this weekend, Saturday, June 16 and Sunday June 17 from 9am-6pm both days!

I did the poster for the event, and it will be for sale in it's artprint form at the Artistic Indulgence booth right next door to mine. Once they sell out, I'll be busting my stash out to sell.

My booth will be under the Central Ave. bridge kiddie-corner from the City Pages main stage, and right across the street from the St. Anthony Main movie theater.

Check it out, I'll have new stuff there!
