Urban (and not-too-soggy) Art @ Minto Park

July 18th, 2009

Fellow Ottawa-heads — drop by and say hi while I sell my wears at Urban Art @ Minto Park tomorrow (Saturday, July 18th) from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. The park is on Elgin Street at Gilmour. I’ll be at spot #6, close to Elgin.

I love craft sales… Below is a shot from last May, at my first-ever show (Hintonburg’s ArtsPark).

If you’re an artist, artisan or crafter, I highly recommend partaking in one of these, if you haven’t already. I have met some of the most amazing and talented folks at these events — it’s a whole lot of inspiration packed into a small space and short time period. There’s also something really special about meeting customers in person.

Besides tomorrow, I also recently found out that I was accepted as a vendor at the Wolfe Island Music Festival, which takes place August 7th and 8th. As you may have noticed here, I’m a bit of a music-head — so it’s an especially exciting event for me: my first out-of-town gig AND the line-up there is astounding… Sarah Harmer, Ohbijou, Woodhands, and more. Needless to say, I’m keen keen keen.

In the meantime, the rain is absolutely pouring outside at the moment… and set-up for Minto Park is in five hours. I’m having a polite chat with Ma Nature right now, asking very nicely for the clouds to empty out tonight so that tomorrow will be a clear day. *Pretty please???*

Hope to see some of you tomorrow!
