We are so thankful for all of the great folks that came out to enjoy the event and support the arts, as well as the super talented artisan vendors and performers, the sponsors, Festival Fete friends, family and staff. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Garden City Center and Whole Foods Market Cranston for all of their support.

Save the date! The next Festival Fete will be the Garden City Art Festival June 8-9, 2013. We are now accepting applications for Artists and food vendors for all 2013 shows. Please visit www.festivalfete.com for more details and an application.

Now on to this weekend…

The always sophisticated and well-run RISD Alumni Art Sale is this weekend at the Providence Convention Center. All artists participating in the sales are RISD alumni or current RISD students selling original work including prints, photographs, apparel, ceramics, glass, textiles, and more!

If you’re looking for more “Artful ways to shop” locally and in the smaller towns of RI, SoRhode Island online features a nice article that describes some venues south of Providence to explore. The Craftland show on Westminster Street in Providence continues this weekend until 12/24. I think I may check out the East Greenwich Library “Winter’s Eve” for a juried art exhibit and concert by The Hummingbird Trio. The event takes place tonight from 5:30 – 8:00 pm and it’s free. This is such a great time of year for socializing and shopping in festive venues – the options are endless! Please share with us what events you will discover this weekend by commenting below.

Have a super weekend!
