We made it to the 43rd Street Art Festival this year — the first time since we moved to Richmond. For some reason, in the past, we always assumed it was a 2 day event, planned to go on Sunday, only to find that it was in fact a 1 day event!
We found the artwork lovely, and were particularly taken with the pottery of Lee Hazelgrove. We purchased one of his medium-sized vessels and would like to purchase another piece (or two) in the future. (The photo above gives you an idea of his work.)
Charles Farrar's woodturned pieces were also terrific. Again, I was drawn to his unique selection of vessels — just beautiful.
Be sure to check out their web sites if you have a chance.
