Art in the Yard 2011

Standard

Drizzle  and cold temps didn’t stop art lovers from attending the Art Gypsies annual fall art show; Art in th Yard. Maybe it was the promise of free gourmet coffee, homemade cranberry tea, fresh-baked treats, live music, a warm fire and,  of course,  great art.  The fall colors were subdued by the dreariness of the day but the sun did come out on occasion and it was celebrated with smiles and laughter.  The grounds were painted with the wonderful colors of pumpkins and sunflowers so that added a nice contrast to the grey skies. Discover Wisconsin, a PBS program, came to film the event and that added a buzz of excitement.  All in all, it was a great day for friends to gather, enjoy music, good food and art.

About bykimball

I live in the woods of northern Wisconsin where I make as much by hand as I can squeeze into a busy day. What I make depends upon what I happen to be inspired by at the moment. It's a mixture of crafts; book making, papermaking, mixed media collage, soapmaking, felting, knitting, macrame......to name a few. Walk the journey with me.
