Artomatic in Frederick ROCKS!

Out of my comfort zone - into the art world of Frederick, MD, and beyond.  Well, actually, I still feel a bit like a voyeur through the looking glass, a little like the tiny minnow swimming with the big fish,  LOVING every minute of it. Frederick, MD, has quite a large art community and this event has attracted the work of artists that live in this area and beyond.  Baltimore, DC, VA, WV. . . Over 300 artists - maybe closer to 400 if you count all the artists from Griffin Center and other art co-ops, art support groups, etc.  Steve and I are two artists that are sharing a space.  I've got a mission for this week.  To visit 115 and 117 E Church St. as a "visitor" and wander through the art, taking note of those that speak to me.

Here is a photo of our space "before" installation:

And NOW:


We have some additional wall space for tangles on metal and paper:

 We've met so many nice artists and visitors   There's music and dance going on too and it's all FREE to the public.  Visit Artomatic Frederick to find the remaining schedule of events, open hours, and market days.

Steve and I will be closing out the show on October 5 (last day for all you procrastinators) from 6 P.M. to 11 P.M. in the Artist Market located at 117 E. Church St.  Please drop by our display at 115 E. Church St., Room 26 (also, sign the book there so we know you came by!).  There is so MUCH to see and experience (for free).  Come support local and regional artists - The Arts in Frederick- Artomatic/Frederick!

My favorite sister (only) is visiting this week and we are going to do Artomatic as visitors for a couple of days (it takes several visits for me to take it all in!).  I will post some photos of my favorites. . .don't have room to post it all.  If you are not from the area or want to take a sneak peek, visit the Artomatic Frederick Facebook Page and view some photos of the art spaces in Building 1  (you may just see a photo or two of our space) and Building 2.   Just a great taste of the wonderful art banquet to share!
