Thanks to Iowa Artisans Gallery, I will be inside during this year’s Iowa Arts Festival away from the wind, so my friends will not have to hold my booth on all four corners (see last year’s post)!

Iowa Artisans Gallery is hosting me in a nice space inside their front door at 207 East Washington Street (Iowa City, IA), while outside under a tent, my watercolor class members will be taking turns demonstrating painting techniques. I will be showing new work — downtown Iowa City scenes, new birds and small scenes — along with Creating for a Cause cards and scarves to benefit Lila Mae’s House.

The Iowa Arts Festival is “an award-winning, weekend-long community celebration featuring over 110 local and national visual artists,” so check out all the activities if you’re in town!
