2013 list of artists for the Woodland Art Fair Lexington KY:
The artists that have websites are linked to from the images on that page.
Above – animated gif I made of Copper sculptures by Classic Copper by Don Persinger of Lancaster, OH (no website)
Symbology – This was probably my favorite jewelry artist. Many pieces I could actually see myself wearing and in a price range that didn’t make me panic. Simpler and smaller without being completely boring or cheap. http://symbology.bigcartel.com/
Carol Reesor had a cloud painting that I loved (didn’t catch the title) which was WAY out of my price range and already sold anyway by the time I had someone go look. http://www.carolreesor.com/index.html
Danny Chu Norcross GA (no website, no contact info, one of my favorites year after year) I remember liking his work a couple of years ago. No pricing listed and seems to not be in the booth when I go by. I’m not even sure if his art is for sale to be honest because I swear I saw a couple of the same paintings I liked a few years ago. Anyone know? Or know what price range? Or is this a “if you have to ask you can’t afford it” type thing?

Chris Hartsfield has some amazing watercolors. Particularly for anyone interested in bourbon, wine, or maybe you’re just trying to tastefully decorate a mancave. Woodford Reserve, Blantons, Pappy Van Winkle … various paintings had various brands. And not limited to bourbon – there are horse paintings and even a section of “girlie stuff.” 🙂 http://chrishartsfield.com/
W Michael Meyer “Ohio Fog” on the top – these are a little more modern than I would typically go for but I like something about the style. All blocky but still somehow conveying something that’s softer at the same time. http://www.wmichaelmeyer.com/Portfolio/Pages/Current_Work.html
q evon – loved the texture in this necklace. And yet from further away it wasn’t overkill or “artsy fartsy” looking. Didn’t realize the price when I was looking at it but it’s still lovely. http://www.qevon.com/mamma-jamma
Youngjoo Yoo -Super fun three dimensional silver patterned earrings. More easy to wear jewelry that’s still unique. http://www.studioyoungjoo.com/
Ron Originals – Ok … think many of his designs are really impressive and elegant… I just don’t know where I would personally put one that it wouldn’t look a bit cheesy in my own home. They really need the right piece in the right setting to I think look good. http://ronoriginals.com/
Really there were TONS of excellent artists. I actually have a lot more photos but I think this is a nice selection of my favorites … oh before I forget.
You can’t miss the knitting around the tree this year:
