ST LOUIS ART FAIR
September 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - September 8, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
I’m very excited to have been juried into the 2019 St Louis Art Fair! It’s perhaps one of the top two outdoor art festivals in the country. The show runs from Friday, Sept. 6 5pm-10pm, Saturday, Sept 7, 11am-10pm and Sunday, Sept 8 from 11am to 5pm. This show respects those of us who are not morning people, and allows those of you who like to shop and party at the same time to do so.
From the Saint Louis Art Fair website:
When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, the dog. You aren’t just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life. Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and the doubt; something that puts the life into the living.
