I'm really happy to announce that I'll be returning to the Buckman Art Show & Sell this year!
I love market season! I realized this as I opened the vendor's packet for Buckman and felt a little rush of excitement. At the risk of seeming way too corny and sincere I just love connecting with people one on one, and the extroverted rush of busyness involved in getting to the sale, setting up, chatting with people about my work for eight hours, meeting new artist neighbors, and then packing it all up, exhausted; it's a wonderful contrast to my every day studio life. My daily work is solitary, which is exactly as I like it. The work of selling at a craft fair is markedly different. I'm really lucky I get to do both.
If you're in Portland, please try to stop by! There are 140 artists and craftspeople at this event, plus food and music.
