Here is a sneak peek at four artists that will be at Festival Fete’s Garden City Art Festival on June 8th and 9th (next weekend!) from 10am – 5pm daily. The festival is free and so is parking so come out to support your local artists and pick up some unique gifts!
1.) Mike Fagella, Uncorked. After 30 years in the flooring business, a few years ago Mike was able to sell his store and pursue his hobby full-time! He creates household accessories out of old wood and corks that he collects. Mike says, “Someone told me about Etsy and the rest is history! Recently I have acquired some French oak from a local whisky distiller and the fact that it is infused with spirits gives the wood a beautiful patina and makes these items very unique. Looking forward to the show!”
2.) Megan Labrecque, Apiary Designs. Apiary Designs is the creative partnership of Megan and her mother Nancy White. They create practical and attractive accessories and household items using a variety of materials including both new and vintage fabrics. They make cute and whimsical aprons for adults and children, totes, yoga mat bags, accessory pouches and more.
3.) Shannon Caldwell, Lotus Life. “Lotus Life was inspired by my personal belief that we all have the power to create the life we want for ourselves, beginning with what we choose to focus on, and the words we choose to use, not only with ourselves, but with others as well.
My intention for Lotus Life is to contribute something to the world that would help replace negative obstacles that separate us from connecting through the heart, even with ourselves. I thought the power of words would be a great place to start. The quotes/words I’ve chosen will hopefully inspire you to see all the positives in your own life, as well as all the possibilities that lie within you!”
“I have always found the beach to be a place of inspiration and peace. While walking the beach one summer I picked up a stone in the perfect shape of a heart and was intrigued… I was amazed at the abundance of these gems of nature tumbled by the sea. I do not shape these stones into hearts, I use them as I find them and I wire wrap the stones keeping the design simple to expose their natural beauty.”
