Getting excited for 2017 shows!
Applications are going out fast. Here is a list of some of my favorite shows from 2016. Some I have already been accepted for 2017 and some are pending. Check back here as my list for fills out.
May 14-15 I hope to be participating in the Janesville Renaissance Faire for the first time. After doing A Gathering of Rogues and Ruffians Renaissance Faire last October I am ready for another historical event. Huzzah!
June 3rd – Dragon Art Fair in Deforest. I have been accepted as a returning juried artist for my 3rd season. It’s always fun and well attended. The weather is usually warm but not too hot and there is art, food and fun.
June 10th – New for 2017 – 14South Artists will host an Art Walk in Stoughton. Watch for more details as my location is firmed up!
July 2017 will be a month off for Carnelian Sol Designs art fairs and shows. After 6 years of hot July days, I will be using my time at home on the weekends to develop and create new designs! Its a great time to dye.
August will bring two really great juried art fairs!
August 12th is Paoli Art in the Mill Park. It’s a small event in an Oak Savannah that includes music and beverages with art. I have been an accepted juried artist for this show.
August 19th Agora Art Fair- This annual event is one that I have attended many years. It is in neighboring Fitchburg. Last year I sold jewelry to a shopper without a booth- she bought it off my neck. What luck! This year I hope to be a juried vendor at this show.
September is one of my favorite months for shows. The weather is usually fair and shoppers are starting to think about holiday gifting.
September 03- Sunday of Labor Day weekend is Art in the Park in New Glarus in conjunction with Wilhelm Tell Days. This is a juried art fair. It’s in a lovely little park and this event has lots of community support.
September 10th I plan to do the Art at the Mart show at Ahuska Park in Monona. This will be my 6th year here. It runs concurrently with a popular farmers market.
October is my favorite month of the year. Huzzah!
October 14-15 will be A Gathering of Rogues and Ruffians in New Glarus at the Wilhelm Tell Grounds Park. Here my pavilion and I will be dresses in Renaissance Garb. Check out Pirates, Belly Dancers, Royalty and Merchant Guilds. This is my last outdoor show for the season.
November is a very busy month. I hope to do all of these shows again.
