Check Out The Wickford Outdoor Art Festival This Weekend

The Wickford Outdoor Art Festival celebrates 50 years this weekend. Come out and see work by artists from around the corner and around the country!

If you like art, you should go to the  this weekend, in beautiful downtown Wickford.

It's the 50th year of the festival, which was ranked the No. 1 fine arts festival in New England by Sunshine Artist magazine and 7th out of the top 200 in the country!

Artists from around the country will be participating, and the quality of the work is excellent. 

This is my third year exhibiting in the show, and it is an honor to be included. I'll be on Elam Street, a side street just a little bit away from Wickford's main street. I like showing on Elam Street a lot – there are enough people to ensure me an interesting and fun day, with a chance at good sales, but it's a little less hectic than the main drag. There's a little more room, too, and I appreciate that! 

I'll be showing new paintings, including the newest entries in my 100x100 series, in which I'm making 100 10-inch by 10-inch (100 square inches) paintings, priced at $100. I'm loving the challenge of doing this! 

You'll find paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and all sorts of fine arts at the show. Wickford is a beautiful waterfront village, and the whole thing is a fun event. There are food and beverage vendors, and the restaurants are open, of course – but bring some H20, and sunscreen – and leave your dog at home. It's going to be too hot for him or her! 

See you on Elam Street!
