Fall is the time of year known for the abundance of apples growing, the Oktoberfest events happening everywhere, Thanksgiving plans stewing, and the bright alluring colors of the foliage.
If you are an artist you are probably enjoying all these great attributes of the season, but you are also probably very busy creating work for one or multiple autumn art festivals. For now I am keeping my head afloat with new work, but the first show is coming up in three weeks and there’s still so much to do!
This is the time to get organized to be efficient.
So what is happening in Connecticut that has me excited and busy all at once, you ask? This year I am first-time participant of Open Studios in Hartford, a city-wide event where. This will be happening Saturday & Sunday, November 14 & 15, 2015. There are close to 250 artists participating in this event, it is sure to leave your art yearning satisfied!!
