Here are a few photos from last weekend’s Kings Mountain Art Fair, up in Woodside.
This has to be one of the most beautiful art fairs anywhere. It’s situated up in the redwood mountains between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. The ‘fragile’ arts – ceramics, glass, jewelry – were up in the parking lot, but we lucky visual artists were located in amongst the trees.
Here you can see some of my bins of prints. If you look closely, you can just barely see the duct tape holding the big black print bin to the tent upright. My site had all sorts of slopes and angles, and I had everything taped and roped together so it wouldn’t roll downhill. It all worked out, and I got a lot of traffic through my tent.
Here is another view of the fair, with my rack of mini-print cards in the foreground. Just across the way you can see the tent of my booth-neighbor, Jany Seda. Her work is lovely, and we had a fine time hanging out together.
If I looked up from my site, I could just see the tents and crowd in the parking lot above.
Looking downhill to what was referred to as the ‘artist grotto.’ That’s one of my prints hanging on the tree. Not to worry! I didn’t add the nail, but used one that was in place from years past.
I had a great time! A beautiful location, an incredibly well-organized fair, good artist neighbors, lots of fabulous conversations with attendees (including Kim Baise, who mentioned the print she bought in her blog).
I hope I can do it again next year!
