Attending an art show or festival is must do event every fall. This year we were out of town for FAFO (Fine Arts For Ocala) and missed the McIntosh 1890 Festival as well as the Micanopy Fall Harvest Festival, favorite local events. And although we were near St. Marks on their festival weekend, we decided not to fight the crowds since the Stone Crab Festival, the Monarch Butterfly Festival, and the International Archeology Day celebration all drew crowds on the same day.
Instead, this year, we drove to Oviedo for the Great Day in the Country Arts and Crafts Festival. The draw? Emily entered a booth as a first time exhibitor.
And since the festival encouraged both art and crafts, she displayed her painted canvases as well as cards, hangers, koozies and other products she sells in her Etsy Shop, Oh Deer Creative.
With the help of her sister, friend, and husband she survived a busy day and enjoyed a new experience as an exhibitor.
And, fortunately, it’s not too late to find another festival this fall.
