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:
Handmade purses, assorted necklaces, magnets and collage paintings.
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.
One of the framed collages on display in the wine crate.
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:
He has really come a long way from his early polymer creations.
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!
