Boogie on the Bricks

Saturday was the last day of the annual “Ohio Brew Week” festivities here in Athens, celebrating home brew and craft brew culture.  The culmination of the week is an all-day festival of brews, tunes, and art.

This year we didn’t sample any brews, we grooved to the tunes, and this is the art we took for sale:

boogie one

Handmade purses, assorted necklaces, magnets and collage paintings.

boogie two

We didn’t have display for hanging items, so I made do with these old wine crates my mom gave to me.  I think they worked pretty well.

boogie three

One of the framed collages on display in the wine crate.

boogie four

Collage pins made using old name tags.  I love making these collages, they provide the perfect setting for all those odds and ends left over after making bigger pieces.

Izzy got into the show spirit as well:

izzy art

He has really come a long way from his early polymer creations.

izzy art two

I love how he comes up with scenarios for his creations.  The King Crab is multi-media, it’s made using shells and glitter as well as the polymer clay.  This year he even has two pieces in the Youth Creative Art exhibit at the Ohio State Fair.  It’s a great joy to see the pleasure my children take in expressing their creativity.  Boogie oogie oogie!
