Opening the summer season for the 44th time, Summerfair features over 300 fine artists and cat people (I mean craftspeople) from across the U.S. and Canada. The show covers the categories of painting, wood, ceramics, photography, fibers, leather, jewelry, and 2D/3D mixed media. Regional performers and gourmet arts are also featured. It's going to be hot this weekend but that's all a part of the fun. Strolling around the park with friends and family, chatting with the artists, and finding a piece that you just can't live without are all a part of the tradition. Unfortunately, I can't go. They don't allow cats and dogs. Maybe Neil and Eric will find me something special this time. I think they're over buying me collars and food dishes. It's the thought that counts though! Check out the Little Black Dress Event on Saturday evening also. It was inspired by Truman Capote. He liked us cats, even though Audrey Hepburn refused to name hers in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". He'd also like the fact that Summerfair goes beyond the yearly exhibit by supporting professional and emerging small arts groups and local individual artists.
The event runs from 2 to 8pm Friday, 10am to 8pm Saturday, and 10am to 5pm Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults over 12 including parking. Have fun (without me)!
