More events may trickle in here and there, but as of now these are my confirmed events, and I am so excited about each one! The artist community is such a special group to be a part of, I am always in awe of people I meet at art fairs, through instagram, etc. Meeting new people through these events and social media is so fun for me because I get to see how my art impacts you, as well as just getting to chat about life.
With all the intensity of life these days, it's meeting people and having conversations that brings me hope for humanity. There is so much goodness in this world, so many good things we can share together, and to me there's no better way to come together than through eating some good food, walking along the way, admiring different artists' expression, and chit chatting about everything under the sun.
So if you're looking for a way to boost your spirits go to your local art fair, because there's a lot of hope there. Hope is found in togetherness. In sharing experiences and relating.
