New Art @ Cherry Creek Art Festival

Thought you’d enjoy some of the photos I took at the festival. The heat was bearable mid-afternoon Saturday, then, a torrential rain hit closing down the entire festival around 4:00 p.m. Because I hadn’t had enough, I ventured back on Sunday. The search for a parking spot was a drag – both days. They issued tons of tickets on Saturday on cars parked on the East side of the streets north of 3rd Avenue.  Poor sports.

This was my first visit to CCAF in two years. On my last visit in 2010, I thought there was too much textile art and photography and neither were all that great. For what it’s worth, I liked the vintage and junk art trend.  I didn’t see many artists I recognized, which I think was a good indication that artists from across U.S. are still interested in being in the show. I calculated  s o l d tickets in one booth where the artist had sold close to $20,000, in original oil paintings and etchings.

More than anything, I’m happy CCAF is still alive after 22 years. I remember the first one with the late performance artist, Denny Dent. That festival had the best street food for the day, and, it was a glorious show. Great job CCN for keeping this event alive and tasteful.

As usual lots of dogs, edible and petible, great fair food and, too many baby carriages for the traffic.

Just kidding. This is a replica of “David,” at the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum in St. Augustine, Florida.
