Que Lindo Art Fair a big success!
Over 27 artists showed their wares at the annual Que Lindo Art Fair in Samara yesterday.
Samara Organics and the Natural Center provided a shady venue.
Between barbecue duties, Steve kept us entertained with his guitar.
Nia’s ideas were finally exposed to public scrutiny.
Maria Fernanda showed her eclectic mix of colorful masks and paintings.
Marlene spent the afternoon in the company of her iconic oxen bulls.
Patty brought watercolors, originals, prints, and calendars while Andrey showed off his acrylic paintings.
Andrey demonstrated the traditional art of Guatil pottery to some young enthusiasts.
With my sister’s help, I showed recent fused glass works next to Holly’s beautiful water-colors.
The tropics calls for color and Davina responds with her paintings.
Josefina is one of several talented jewelers and clothing designers who came to the art fair.
The usual Friday Market shared cool beverages along with breads, spreads and farm produce.
But, as the afternoon wore on, the beers came out of the coolers.
The silent auction of donated art raised c37,000 ($75.00) for CREAR (after school children’s program) who had a hands-on activity table at the art fair.
Inspired by possibilities, these two emerging artists will be ready for next year’s event. Que Lindo!
