Here are some quick photos from yesterday’s OTR/Gateway Summer Celebration. It was a hot but beautiful day, and we were having too much fun to notice that we were slowly turning into sticky, sunburned raisins.
Here is the VisuaLingual booth, including serigraphs, coasters, trivets, placemats, tea towels, and seed bombs. Look for our new work in area boutiques and in our online shop this week:
A father/son lemonade stand was the perfect prelude to Father’s Day:
The talented Beth of Homebaked by the B couldn’t attend the event, so her supportive parents worked the booth:
As expected, Wire & Twine totally turned it out:
Visionaries & Voices featured affordable art by artists with disabilities, including this awesome locomotive drawing by Barb Moran:
Thank you so much to everyone who checked out the Summer Celebration, all the art, craft, food and drink vendors who took part, all the bands who kept our toes tapping and our booties shaking throughout the day, and to all the behind-the-scenes folks who worked so hard to make this event possible — especially Terry of Outside, Mike of MiCA 12/v, and Kelly of 3CDC. Thanks to yesterday’s turnout and positive response, we plan to turn this into an annual [or even semi-annual] event!
Sidenote: since the organizers are a bunch of first-timers, we’re really hoping to learn from yesterday’s event to make the next one bigger and better. If you stopped by and have some thoughts on what worked and what didn’t, please leave a comment here or contact me at mayadrozdz [at] gmail [dot] com. I would sincerely appreciate your candid feedback.
