Fall Craft Demonstrations
Most of the Exhibitors at the Crozet Fall Arts and Crafts Festival will happily tell you about how they create their unique fine art and craft works – that is one of the big benefits of meeting and purchasing directly from the Artist! – and a few even bring their studios along to the show! Be sure to stop by these demonstration booths to get a first-hand look at how the craft is done.
Meg West, Crozet plein-aire painter, will demonstrate landscape painting in booth 409 in the Festival Tent. Meg West paints as a localist, focusing her painting in Albemarle and surrounding Counties, as well as Skyline Drive and The Blue Ridge Parkway. Meg paints every day and enjoys the rhythm and momentum that comes with a steady flow of painting. The act of painting is what is important – enjoying the feeling of being connected to the environment, herself and the painting.
Mary Luttrell of Firecloud Artworks will demonstrate an ancient Japanese art form called Dorodango, where ordinary dirt is formed into a shiny ball.
The Accidental Octopus
Davene Wasser of The Accidental Octopus creates charcoal drawings of children and pets, with proceeds from pet portraits donated to a service dog training organization. Davene will have an interactive display in her booth, with a light board for children to try their hand at drawing!
