New Art Festival in Saratoga Springs, New York

Next Sunday will be the first Beekman Street Art Fair in Saratoga Springs and I'll be there at the festival exhibiting my jewelry! My blog posts this week will be previews of the jewelry pieces I'll be bringing...

It's organized by my good friend Cecilia Frittelli (Of Frittelli Lockwood) and she has lined up an amazingly talented group of artists to exhibit. The show will be outdoors on the sidewalks of this charming street and I can't wait! Here are the details:

Beekman Street Art Fair
Sunday, June 10, 2012
Beekman Street, Saratoga Springs
Come to the first annual Beekman Street Art Fair, featuring a juried art show with displays and demonstrations by local and regional artists. Attend our family-friendly performances under the big tent, purchase fine art and craft works, and watch a demonstration of the artists' craft. In addition, enjoy refreshments and tasty treats from a variety of food trucks! The art show will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and performances run from noon to 5 p.m.

 Most people when they head to the resort town of Saratoga Springs don't leave hustle and bustle of the main drag of Broadway. But insiders know to seek out the unique artisan shops and charming restaurants of Beekman Street, just a few blocks stroll from Broadway. One thing I love about Beekman Street is that many of the businesses plant lush plants in the area between the sidewalk and the street. It is like walking through a colorful garden wonderland!

 Isn't this the PERFECT place for an art festival?

{next week!}
I can't wait until these sidewalks are full of people, artists, musicans (and gourmet food trucks!)  next Sunday for the festival! Will you be able to go?
