East Greenwich Art Festival Coming Soon!

22 Jul

Hey Festival Go-ers! We are excited to announce that the East Greenwich Art Festival will be here before you know it and we want to share some of our lovely featured local artists…

A Dog’s Life Bakery will be there…

At It’s a Dog’s Life Bakery, they make all natural, gluten and preservative-free dog treats that people feel good about giving their dogs.  They also make stylish handmade collars and leashes, perfect for our furry friends in sizes from chihuahas to St. Bernards…

    The main inspiration behind their work is Kristin Paradis’ 170 lb.St. Bernard, Otis, a frustrated fashionista, who had nothing cute to wear!  He also suffers from various allergies, so after much research, and many delicious trials and errors, It’s a Dog’s Life Bakery was born.


     A Dog’s Life Bakery prides themselves on having the  happiest, most enthusiastic customers, who make them smile every time they stop by the booth! “Oh, and their humans are very nice too!”

Nancy Rafi will also be there…

Collage and art journaling professional, Nancy creates handbound blank art journals filled with 140# paper with fun designs and sayings on them.  The journals are unique because there are so few blank journals with this great paper, which can stand up to watercolor, acrylic, glue, collage and never bend or buckle.

Her inspiration for creating journals is the love she has for art journaling herself.  She spends at least 30 minutes every day working in her journal…and usually a lot longer!

This summer, Nancy has become involved with an international group call Art Abandonment (created by Michael and Andrea deMeng) that invites artists around the world to create art and then leave it somewhere where others can find it and take it home.  There are more than 5000 people involved in the project!  Nancy has created a giving tree in Wickford with a few dozen pieces hanging from the branches, and received three emails from people who found them and took them home.  She thinks it’s a great way to celebrate art and share it with the world and so do we!

These are only a couple of our wonderful participating artists and vendors that will be at the East Greenwich Art Festival on September 1st and 2nd at the New NE Tech Campus!

Stay tuned all week for more fun features about our artists and festivals!

Big thanks to our wonderful sponsor…
