I won their Merit Award which is one of their top four awards! I'm invited back next year without having to go through the jury process and I don't have to pay for my booth fee! I was really surprised by this, though it doesn't really show in the picture above, or maybe I was still in shock and didn't really believe it!
My son Fischer came with for the whole weekend and he was such a trooper! He loves going around and looking at all the artists work and he had many favorites. At one point he came back and asked if I had $400 dollars for a cool sculpture he liked. Hee, hee. Though I did get him a gift for being such a good helper. Out of all the artists he chose Mary Hager's work which is brightly colored critters such as lizards, frogs, beetles and crabs made from metal or wood and air dried clay that she paints.
I wish I would have been able to see all of the artists at the fair. That's one of the biggest downfalls about doing art fairs is that I don't get to look around:( I also didn't get to see much of Minneapolis. I'd like to spend a little more time there to check the city out and enjoy it.
